The Spirit of Cricket is best demonstrated during competitive matchplay.
All Chance to Shine schools have been provided with an MCC Spirit of Cricket Trophy to support intra schools competition.
We would like your school to organise a competition which allows the children to put into practice what has been learnt in the classroom.
In addition, we would encourage you to ensure that all matches are scored and umpired, perhaps by the children, so that children get used to this important facet of the game.
Within your school you can determine the format or type of game you wish to play. We provide information here for Kwik Cricket and Inter Cricket.
Kwik cricket is designed for Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) and provides a simple, accessible introduction to the game.
It is normally played in pairs in either 6 or 8 aside matches, which take around 30 minutes to play.
The game includes all facets of regular cricket and allows children to learn new skills, apply them appropriately and evaluate individual and team performance within an active high energy team game.
Inter Cricket acts as the bridge between Kwik and Hardball Cricket and is suitable for Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14).
It can be played indoors or out, and to a length of game dependent on the time you have available.
It develops the core cricketing skills and allows participants a better opportunity to showcase these skills whilst developing greater tactical appreciation and improved decision making.
