Cricket is played by more than 500 students each Saturday during Term One with teams participating in the AIC competition. Cricketers at Marist College Ashgrove have upheld a fine tradition in an activity that truly benefits the students and culture of the College. It also gives students the opportunity to represent the district and state through the Queensland School Sport Association.
What are the Benefits?
The cricket program is customised to address the individual needs of boys with varying skills and abilities with a central theme for all teams of developing experience, team work and responsibility. Participating in the co-curricular program enhances the students’ relationships in a safe and structured environment.
Who can Participate?
All students from Years 7 to 12. There is a team suited to the ability of each boy and every student is encouraged to participate.
When is it Held?
Cricket goes for the entirety of Term One. Training consists of one (1) or two (2) sessions during the week depending on divisions and the competition runs for seven (7) games, plus trials.
Each player is required to wear long whites and an appropriate hat. Due to the time of the year in which cricket is played, the College strongly encourages all players to take appropriate care to protect themselves from the elements. Each team is supplied with a kit that contains helmets, bats, boxes and gloves.
Who are our Coaches?
A team of dedicated coaches comprised of teaching staff and Old Boys facilitate the process of development under the guidance of the Head of Sports. For more information, please contact our Cricket Coordinators: Phil Tonkin and Stuart Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
