Cricket Australia programs for primary schools use a ‘learn through play’ philosophy and culminate with modified T20 games like a Woolworths Cricket Blast program. These programs are made up of practical cricket activities that focus on fun, fitness and friendships.
Woolworths Cricket Blast
A before or after school program designed to promote active lifestyles for kids of all abilities. This 4-week skills program promotes learning through play and uses skills challenges and small sided games to achieve learning outcomes. The program will give the students the confidence & competence to continue playing cricket in the community club, who will be linked to the school throughout the program.
