Sport NZ and five of the country’s biggest sports codes - Cricket, Football, Hockey, Netball and Rugby – have announced that they are collectively taking a stand to bring the fun and development focus back to sport for all young people.

For the past six years, Taupo Junior Cricket Club has been focused on increasing player numbers and making sure the cricketing experience is fun for their year 0-8 players. By modifying the rules to ensure low team numbers, participation has increased and membership has grown to a stage that the Friday night sessions now attract 120 primary players.

Coaches are assigned their teams which are created with an even distribution of talent and experience to ensure a fair and fun competition. Players in years 3-4 and 5-6 bat in pairs for 5 overs, with the pairs changed and batting position rotated each week, and bowling duties shared. Bowlers are matched to batters to ensure an even contest.

As well as Friday night games, player development sessions are open to all with Lake Taupo Cricket Club contracted to provide quality coaching sessions for year 5- 8 players. Bay of Plenty Cricket ensure the year 0-2 players are catered for with their Super Star academy.
