Stockton Kwik Cricket Tournament
This is a Stockton Schools’ Sports Partnership Inter Stockton School Cluster Cricket Event.
Kwik Cricket is a fully inclusive game where the emphasis is on competition, participation and enjoyment. It is specifically tailored for children up to the age of 11. Each Kwik Cricket team has eight players (both girls and boys), placed into pairs who bat for eight overs. Games are played with a plastic bat and ball. Mill Lane sent two Year 5 teams to Stockton Cricket ground, they played with skill and showed amazing sportsmanship, resilience and camaraderie. They behaved impeccably, were fantastic ambassadors for our school and thoroughly enjoyed the competitive experience. The best news is that they were one of the top two teams in their cluster and are off to ‘Wolviston Cricket Ground’ to the Tees Valley Kwik Cricket Tournament.
Tees Valley Kwik Cricket Tournament
On Wednesday 27th June Mrs Akhtar and Mr Poole accompanied the Mill Lane Kwik Cricket team to Wolviston Cricket Ground and led them to victory. The children won all their games. They were competing against Stockton, Ingleby Barwick, Thornaby and Billingham schools. The children have been working really hard to master batting, bowling and fielding skills whilst focussing on the values of honesty, teamwork, determination, self-belief, respect and passion. All their practise, determination, comparing their performances with previous ones and identifying areas of improvement and individual targets has clearly resulted in a gifted and talented display of sportsmanship. Well done guys, we are so proud of you. Next stop – Maltby Cricket Ground, Kwik Cricket Tournament Final.
The Kwik Cricket Tournament is a Stockton School’s Sports Partnership Inter School event that is organised by Peter Sheahan, Emma Turnbull and Rose Mullins. Each match is umpired by Sport Leaders (students) attending Northfield School, Billingham. On return to school the adults accompanying our team reported that these Sports Leaders were,… “fantastic, so organised and helpful. They clearly and simply explained the rules and how points would be taken and given. They were encouraging whilst being impartial, showed patience and amazing senses of humour. They clearly worked well together. They had excellent organisation and recording skills. As always, all the Sports Leaders were a credit to Northfield School. It was an amazing day for our Year 5 Kwik Cricket Team – we won every match! ” As you can see, the children are very proud of their certificates and medals – a keep sake to remind them of this special day.
