Cricket has blossomed in Willow in recent years. The success of the national team has undoubtedly spawned an interest that has been nurtured by players, Willow parents and dedicated coaches.

Throughout the year, early morning cricket training takes place up in the Campus Sports facility. Diligent young cricketers arrive on Tuesday or Thursdays at 7.15am to hone their batting, bowling and fielding skills under the watchful eye of Ms. Cusack and our two professional coaches: Reinhardt Strydom and Albert van der Merve.

Such commitment pays off handsomely as Spring approaches and competitive teams are formed. Internal leagues allow developing players to test their skills, whilst Super League & Leprechaun Cup players get a chance to compete with other schools.

Such organisation, supervision and coaching is demanding of resources- be it Parental funding of coaching and gear or School funding of supervision, transport and additional coaching.

As each match will require a minimum of one Coach, one Umpire and a team Manager-cum-Scorer, parental support is always welcome.

There is now a growing cohort of Cricketing Families in Willow Junior who join together to support the boys in their favourite game.

We look forward to another busy season.
