Cricket for Primary Schools

Meath Local Sports Partnership and Cricket Leinster have been working together to promote the sport of Cricket into the National Schools in Meath. Inward migration and the arrival of Non-Irish nationals into new communities have given rise to the demand for new sporting opportunities outside of our national games. One of those activities in demand is Cricket and we are offering primary schools a chance to engage in a new programme specifically designed for children called Kwik Cricket.

Description: This new programme – Kwik Cricket aims to provide more young cricketers with exciting, challenging & enjoyable cricket experiences. The structure of Kwik Cricket – shorter games, modified rules, lighter equipment ensures that children are placed front-and-centre in terms of experience and that their enjoyment of learning the game of cricket is first-and-foremost. The programme sees schools committing to teacher training, 4-6 weeks of coaching and participation in a School Blitz.

  • Entry to the Meath Schools Cricket Blitz

Suitable for: 3rd and 4th class students

Feedback from Teachers & Pupils

  • We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring Cricket to our school as part of our sports programme. The teacher training was top class and the equipment we received is fantastic, it makes it so much easier to introduce a new sport like Cricket when you have all the training resources at hand.
