Cricket for Primary Schools

New Primary Schools Cricket Programme 2023

Meath Local Sports Partnership and Cricket Leinster have been working together to promote the sport of Cricket for children in Meath. 

Description: The Schools Cricket programme provides young cricketers with exciting, challenging & enjoyable cricket experiences. The structure of Schools Cricket includes: shorter games, modified rules and lighter equipment ensuring children are placed front-and-centre in terms of experience and 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.
