Uptown crickets program developing skills for life
The UPtown Crickets pilot program was designed for boys and girls from 8-16 years old. A fun, active program that emphasised maximum participation, basic motor and cricket skill development.

By taking part in the Uptown Crickets pilot program, children learnt the basics of cricket and developed a lot of other skills as well as new friendships in the community. Each week they played game based activities that kept them active, having fun and the opportunity to learn more about cricket.
