CRICKET NSW is calling for schools to join in a pro­gram it has been de­liv­er­ing across Far West NSW under the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Sport­ing Schools ini­tia­tive.

Stu­dents are ex­posed to a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties and mod­i­fied games aimed at in­spir­ing a love of the game whilst in­creas­ing fit­ness and de­vel­op­ing new skills.

The cricket lessons in­volve stu­dents learn­ing the dis­ci­plines of bat­ting, bowl­ing and field­ing re­quired to score runs and take wick­ets in games of cricket.

Danielle Mc­man­nus, a teacher from the re­gion, was very im­pressed with the pro­gram, speaking pos­i­tively about the qual­ity of coach­ing and the flex­i­bil­ity of the pro­gram.

“The coaches who come and de­liver the pro­gram are al­ways prompt re­gard­less of travel time. They are knowl­edge­able in their area of ex­per­tise and adapt pro­grams to cater for all classes from Kinder­garten to Year 6,” she said.

“Over the years we have formed a won­der­ful part­ner­ship with the Sport­ing Schools Cricket Pro­gram. It is pleas­ing to see such en­thu­si­as­tic and ded­i­cated coaches who en­joy their job and work won­der­fully with children.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions for Term Four pro­grams are open from Mon­day, Au­gust 19. In­ter­ested teach­ers are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for fund­ing by vis­it­ing­ cricket-aus­tralia NAR­ROMINE coach Craig Camp­bell is look­ing to cap his for­mi­da­ble record when his team tack­les CSU at Cale Oval on Satur­day.

Nar­romine has led the Cup all year and will be look­ing for their third straight ti­tle.

CSU earned their shot at a first premier­ship in 15 years when they hung on for a 32-29 win over Mudgee. Both teams put aside the mis­er­able con­di­tions to pro­duce a free-flow­ing match. The stu­dents will need to re­pro­duce that form – and then some – if they are to over­turn a 40-point loss to the Go­ril­las on their last visit out west.

Nar­romine meets Mudgee in Sec­ond Grade fol­low­ing the Wom­bats 18-12 vic­tory in Satur­day’s Fi­nal.
