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 a soft 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 on student 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.
