For more than 20 years, Cricket Australia and State and Territory Cricket Associations have delivered entry-level cricket programs that enable kids to learn cricket skills in fun, friendly and enjoyable environment.
MILO in2CRICKET introduces kids to the games of cricket through fun game based activities. The games are designed for small groups to ensure every child gets a go, allowing them to test and learn new skills, such as, social skills, cricket skills, game sense and fundamental movements.
After learning all the basic skills in MILO in2CRICKET, MILO T20 Blast allows kids to experience modified games of cricket using lighter equipment in format that promotes non-stop involvement and equals participation. The program was developed to ensure junior cricketers can progress with confidence to junior hardball cricket.
The program is aligned with the Big Bash and includes all the music, dancing, colour, fun and excitement of this popular competition.
Mr Deepak Bhardwaj, from Multicultural Communities Australia, in partnership with South Australian Cricket Association (SACA), is the man who introduced these programs, this season, to Adelaide parents and kids. “The teams consist of either six or eight players, and the schools and community groups participating only need to provide the children themselves as SACA will provide all the equipment and manage all the administration aspects to facilitate the games. We are trying to encourage a healthy lifestyle and environment to play the game of cricket,” he says.
