RSC Update - Term 2, week 3
THE CRICKET HUB – A SPORTING SCHOOLS REGISTERED PROVIDER
“TERM 3 IS PERFECT FOR YOUR TERM 3 & 4 SPORTING SCHOOLS DELIVERY”
The Cricket Hub Tasmania is a registered provider of the Sporting Schools program through the state’s governing body Cricket Tasmania and Cricket Australia. This $400 million Australian Government initiative enables schools to undertake a cricket program from us with the backing of the Sporting Schools funding.
With this funding we can host your school at our purpose-built facility, or our coaching team can travel to you to run a cricket program focusing on developing your student’s catching, throwing, hitting and general fundamental motor skills. Our program is a fantastic chance for schools in our area as it gives children the confidence in their skills to one day participate in a sporting club outside of school. Furthermore, the skills developed through cricket are transferable to other sports and activities.
WHY THE CRICKET HUB FOR YOUR SCHOOL
- We employ full time qualified coaches (male and female). This means we can deliver a reliable and quality program for your school all year round.
- Our coaches have professional and international experience.
- We have all of our own equipment
BONUS SESSION - As an added bonus, primary schools who hold a school-based session will receive a FREE 90-minute session at The Cricket Hub Tasmania centre, including two coaches and equipment – @ $330 value.
CONNECTING WITH A COMMUNITY SPORTING VENUE
We understand the importance of connecting students with community venues and clubs as an outcome of the school curriculum. When conducting a Sporting Schools program with the Cricket Hub you are introducing your students to a community sports provider. We are located at Kingborough Sports Complex and are also well connected with all cricket clubs in Southern Tasmania.
Credit accounts are available. Tax invoices are provided for all programs.

National Walk Safely to School Day
Now in its 23rd year, National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual event when all Primary School children are encouraged to walk and commute safely to school. It is a Community Event seeking to promote Road Safety, Health, Public Transport and the Environment.
All information can found at: walk.com.au
The event will be held throughout Australia on Friday 20 May 2022.
The objectives of WSTSD are:
- To encourage parents and carers to walk to school with primary school age children and reinforce safe pedestrian behaviour.
- To promote the health benefits of walking and help create regular walking habits at an early age.
- To ensure that children up to 10 years old hold an adult's hand when crossing the road.
- To help children develop the vital road-crossing skills they will need as they become mature pedestrians.
- To reduce the car dependency habits that are being created at an early age and which will be difficult to change as children become adults.
- To promote the use of Public Transport.
- To reduce the level of air pollution created by motor vehicles.
- To reduce the level of traffic congestion.
Background and Details of the Event
WSTSD is an opportunity for parents and carers of Primary School aged children to promote safe pedestrian behaviour.
WSTSD will inform parents and carers that they need to closely supervise their young children, particularly those under 10 years of age, in all road environments, holding hands when near or crossing the road.
WSTSD will promote and inform parents, carers, teachers and children of the significant physical, mental and social health benefits which can be achieved through regular walking.
The event is supported by the Australian Government, all State, Territory Governments and Local Governments.
