Playing Conditions Year 1 and 2
Year 1 and 2’s play “in-house” using a soft ball. During the season we focus on skill-based games, known as Smash Play, to allow the Juniors to learn and gain confidence playing cricket. We mix this up with a few formal games so Juniors can apply the skills that they have learnt in Smash Play in a game situation. These games are all played at our home ground, Windsor Park, and last for about an hour.
What is Smash Play? Smash Play is a cricket-based programme developed by New Zealand Cricket for junior tamariki with a focus on game play, values, participation and enjoyment.
This season: This season all of the Year 1 – 2 games will be on a Friday evening from 5.30pm-6.30pm on the top field at Winsdor Park (refer to Park Map below). Friday evening games allow spectators to have a team picnic or barbecue on the side of field, so if the sun's out, bring the family along and come enjoy some Junior Cricket.
