CANTERBURY CRICKET CLUB
JUNIOR CRICKET CLUB PHILOSOPHY
The role of the Canterbury Junior Cricket Club is to create an enjoyable and collaborative spirit where the emphasis is on sportsmanship, equal participation, skill development and celebrating the success of individuals, team and club.
THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME
The Club is a strong supporter of Cricket Australia's 'Spirit of the Game' principles and the ECA Codes of Behaviour. Emphasis is placed on safety and showing respect towards teammates, club officials, umpires and opponents.
OUR UNDERLYING PHILOSOPHY
1. Learning sportsmanship is the guiding principle for all junior cricket teams. The Spirit of the Game should be embraced by players and coaches. Sportsmanship should always prevail over winning.
2. Encouraging participation is key. This is fundamental to all our teams from Milo cricketers up to Under 16 level. It is everyone’s responsibility to encourage all players, to ensure the team operates as a team of equals and that we are inclusive.
3. Skill Development. All players should be given the opportunity to receive quality advice and compete at an appropriate level to enhance their skill development.
4. Celebrate Success. Success comes in all different forms in cricket - from a half-century to a first catch. There is no better way to build a team and club than to celebrate the achievements of all players (including the opposition).
