Primary - Cricket


Cork Sports Partnership and Munster Cricket have teamed up to roll out a Cork Primary Schools Cricket Programme. This programme will run across a limited number of Cork primary schools from January 2021.   

The aim of the programme is to introduce 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th class primary school children (Boys, Girls & Mixed) to the sport of Cricket in a fun and supportive environment.

  • 5 Coaching Sessions per class group (3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th classes)
  • Cricket Resource Pack
  • FREE Entry for teachers to the 5-11yrs Cricket Ireland Coaching Kids course

This programme is valued at over €550 per school and is heavily subsidised by Cork Sports Partnership and Munster Cricket. The programme will cost each school €50 to take part in which will be payable upon acceptance to the programme.
