CRICKET Australia has announced that its latest Tasmanian In2Cricket Centre will be in the Derwent Valley. The program will run for three weeks with a total of six sessions to be held at New Norfolk’s Boyer Oval.
Sponsored by Milo, the In2Cricket program offers children aged 5 to 10 years the opportunity to kick-start their cricket career, learn skills like batting, bowling, catching and throwing, as well as social skills allowing them to make new friends and most importantly to have fun.
“Cricket season is here again and In2Cricket is the best way for kids to get involved,” program manager Chris Rawson said. “It’s exciting for Cricket Australia and Cricket Tasmania to work together to provide kids from the local community the chance to experience cricket and I encourage everyone to come down.”
Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said the program was a fundamental component in creating Australia’s next generation of cricketers. “Milo In2Cricket sessions such as this one in New Norfolk are extremely important as we grow cricket as Australia’s favourite sport,” Mr Sutherland said. “We are dedicated to giving 5-10 year-old boys and girls an enjoyable and fun cricket experience, whether it’s at cricket clubs, in schools or at one of the thousands of weekend Milo In2Cricket clinics around Australia.”
The New Norfolk clinics will start on February 29. To register or to find out more, visit www.in2cricket.com.au and search for New Norfolk.
