The first CRICKY CRICKET franchise opened in 2011, since then the franchise has grown extensively. The demand for extra mural activities at school level is increasing and schools where we are have surely been seeing results; our love for this sport and development led us to establish the CRICKY NETBALL for girls in 2018 as well as the CRICKY RUGBY starting this year – now there’s even more options for skill development.

All 3 franchises offer kids ages 3 to 9 years the opportunity to kick start their school sporting career, learn lots of new skills as well as social skills allowing them to make new friends and most importantly HAVE FUN!

 

OVERVIEW:

  • The sessions are well organised and help kids to develop social skills, motor skills and basic sport know how.
