Cricket

Cricket Co-ordinator: Mrs Jo Nicolls

Cricket is a popular sport at All Saints' College Junior School. Boys and girls inTransition to Year 1 participate in the in2cricket program at the school on a Saturday morning. This is an exciting program which enables participants to be involved in a range of activities that develops their cricket skills in a fun and engaging environment. Students in Years 2 to 3 participate in the School's Kanga cricket team in the local Bathurst and District Cricket Association during Terms 1 and 4 on a Saturday morning.

This is a modified game that uses asoft ball and plastic equipment to allow the students to develop their skills in a safe and non competitive environment. Children in Years 4 to 6 typically beginning playing with a harder ball and begin to use protective equipment such as pads, gloves and a helmet. The emphasis in all forms of the game is onstudent participation, enjoyment and skill development.

Training for the Kanga and Hardball teams is held during After School Sport on Wednesday afternoon between 3.30 and 4.30.

Basketball

Basketball Co-ordinator: Mrs Kay Murray

Basketball teams consist of boys and girls from years 4, 5 and 6. The level of ability is often wide as some students often take to the court without even having held a basketball, let alone played a full game.

The more experienced players quickly teach all players the rules and necessary skills. Training takes place on a Wednesday afternoon and matches are played on Thursday and Friday nights at the Bathurst Basketball Stadium. In the competition we play teams from other schools of similar age and ability, with a qualified umpire to control the game. There is a court cost to pay each night and the singlets are provided by the school.

Multi Sport

Multi Sport Co-ordinator: Ms Lisette Dale

Multi Sport is a non-competitive after school sport option available to students in Years 3-6.

Depending upon numbers, the children will be assigned to either the Saturday morning group, which meets from 8:30-930am, or the Wednesday afternoon group, which meets from 3:30-4:30pm. There is a nominal cost of $20 associated with this After School Sport option.

Both groups develop their skills across a range of fun-based activities including, tennis, swimming, soccer, fitness, basketball drills, Klopp, boules, ball skills, volleyball and a range of other fun sports.

Students will need to bring a tennis racket and their swimmers to each session.

The Saturday morning group also participates in the community event, the Bathurst Park Run. This is a 5km walk/run that takes place around the river in town. On the days that the students are doing that option, they meet Ms Dale at the BBQs at Peace Park at 7:55am on Saturday morning and are to be collected from the same spot at 9:00am.
