Learning the Skills

MILO in2CRICKET

Information for Parents

For more than 20 years, boys and girls from across the country have been taking part in MILO in2CRICKET.

The entry level participation program is for five to eight year olds and involves fun, safe activities that teach kids the basic skills to play cricket, in a supportive, non-competitive environment.

The active, inclusive program allows kids to make friends, develop social skills and team work. It's about fun, fitness and being a good sport!

The program is run by trained volunteers. Each participant receives a pack containing a plastic bat, soft ball, bucket hat, water bottle and back pack so kids can practice their skills during the program and at home with family and friends.
