The NZ Cricket Skills Challenge
Lessons for Year 7 and 8 kids
The NEW ZEALAND CRICKET SKILLS CHALLENGE is a structured series of lessons which allows Year 7 and 8 students to test themselves in a number of fundamental cricket skill areas against a set of easily measurable standards and achieve a bronze, silver or gold skill award in recognition of their level of performance.
Building on the interest and progressive skill development programmes introduced through the HAVE A GO and KIWI CRICKET initiatives, the Challenge is an effective, fun way to promote the game of cricket in schools.
SKILLS CHALLENGE OBJECTIVES

- To test these skills and acknowledge competence levels with appropriate awards.
- To promote physical activity, foster an understanding and enjoyment of cricket and encourage children to participate in the game.
