Cricket, with its code of laws has always been regarded as a strong moral
educator. This is particularly important in this age of contempt for officials
and other players in the world of sport. Youngsters participating in the
program develop sportsmanship, life skills, decision making skills, respect
for authority and most of all respect for their fellow players.
Cricket is an ideal sport for all ages and abilities, apart from the obvious benefits of sporting activity, such as improving hand-eye coordination and increased physical fitness, cricket also has a strong strategy and thinking aspect.
The skills learned in cricket can be equated to life
skills such as patience, determination, communication and above all, team
work. These skills can be nurtured and developed through participation
in cricket and be an asset to any young individual in both everyday life
and in the workplace.
The Junior Cricketers Code
Cricketers should be people who do not boast; nor
quit; nor make excuses when they fail. They should be cheerful losers,
and quiet winners. They should play fairly and as well as they can. They
should enjoy the pleasure of risk. They should give their opponents the
benefit of the doubt and value the game itself more highly than the result.
