Cricket

Cricket Australia offers Sporting Schools packages to both Primary and Secondary Schools. All of our Cricket programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and are an integral part of the Australian Cricket Strategy which aims to grow participation, whilst providing quality experiences for all students.

Specifically, our recently refreshed Health and PE Program has been built on the foundations of the Australian Curriculum, the Australian Sports Commission Physical Literacy Standard and the Australian Cricket Coaching Philosophy. These foundations combined have created an inclusive and engaging program with a core focus on 'learning through play'. 

Whether you select our coach or teacher delivered Cricket package, our programs are suitable for students of all abilities. In addition, resources have been developed for easy delivery by both coaches and teachers.

We can’t wait to assist you and your school in creating a healthy and active culture through Cricket!

Secondary School Programs

Cricket Australia offers two curriculum aligned, engaging and inclusive programs for secondary school students in Year 7 and 8 that use cricket as the vehicle for promoting movement and physical activity.

  • Cricket Skills and Games is an exciting new teacher or coach delivered program that allows students to learn through movement by using modified games for skill development. The final week of the program consists of modified T20 games which are designed by the students themselves.
  • Cricket Australia is excited to offer a new Female Cricket Health & PE program for Year 7 and 8 secondary school girls. The program is designed with a holistic view of physical activity which contributes to social, physical and community well-being. It also promotes a positive and safe learning environment with reduced barriers to participation for female students.

Cricket For All

Cricket for All is an adapted program designed by Cricket Australia in partnership with Special Olympics Australia, catering for students with intellectual disabilities and autism. Coaches are purposefully trained to deliver in special education environments and to adapt activities to suit the needs of participating students.

With the support of Deaf Sports Australia, we can also facilitate an Active Deaf Kids program through Sporting Schools. To book, simply outline in the comments that you would like an Active Deaf Kids program.
