Cricket for kids
IT'S not too late to sign your child up to have a go at cricket.
Several clubs across Ipswich are running the Milo In2 Cricket and the T20 Blast.
The Milo In2 Cricket is aimed at kids who haven't played much cricket. It is where they will be taught the skills of cricket such as catching, throwing, bowling and batting.
The T20 Blast is for kids who have had some exposure to cricket through the Milo In2 Cricket program or just in the backyard
In this program they will still continue to hone their skills but will also play a modified game so that they learn the skills of the game environment.
