Cricket is the summer sport with the highest amount of participants, forming three to four teams per age group. Mini-cricket is part of our skills programme, with practices starting directly afterwards. This gives the boys a large amount of exposure to the skills needed to participate competitively, followed by a team-oriented practice. Our u.11A and u.13A teams have both won inter schools for the past several years!
The cricket season began in full swing the first term. There were five teams in the u.11 age group and four teams in u.13 age group. Our numbers continue to grow each new season. The opposition was tough this term and it was fantastic to see so many of the boys step up to the challenge. Congratulations to some of our teams who remained unbeaten. It was also really wonderful to host Primrose Hill and Bedford Collage who were on tour from London, England. In tightly contested matches, BPS was on the winning side against Primrose Hill but just fell short against Bedford.
A.g.v die droogte in die Wes-Kaap is daar nie vanjaar krieketproewe vir Sentraal-Boland krieketspanne gehou nie.
Reinhard Barnard is genooi na die o.13 Boland krieketproewe en het deurgedring na die finale proewe.
Mini-Cricket this term was another big success. Our boys did very well against our opposition in the Junior Phase. Our parents can be very proud of their boys. BPS have approximately 130 boys from gr.1-3 who practise every week . Thank you to all the boys, coaches and parents for a great season.
Die skool voorsien alle toerusting vir die o.7-o.9-seuns wat mini-krieket speel. As die o.9-seuns met die hardebal-oefening begin, sal die skool ook alle toerusting voorsien.
Seuns wat vir die o.11A- of B en o.13A- of B–spanne speel, moet die volgende toerusting hê:
Die seuns wat vir die o.11 Cobras en Titans, en die o.13 Lions en Warriors gekies word, word van toerusting deur die skool voorsien.
Teams are selected on merit. All boys take part in the cricket trials at the beginning of each year, at which point all the relevant coaches are present. The trials are based on the three aspects of cricket; batting, bowling and fielding. The coaches assess all three.
At u.13 level the boys are also expected to reach certain “fitness” goals, however, if these goals are not reached, they can still be selected for a team, but fitness will then be a target area to be worked on.
Team selection is not final. If a boy is good enough to be promoted the necessary considerations will be made by the head coach of the age group and the coach of the respective team.
Mini-krieket word deur die o.7 – o.9-seuns (graad 1-3) gespeel. Die o.9-leerders begin met hardebaloefeninge om sodoende die leerders voor te berei vir die o.11-ouderdomsgroep, wat met ‘n volledige elfmanspan, hardebalkrieket speel.
Daar is geen o.10-liga in Boland nie, daarom sal die o.10 en o.11-leerders in die o.11-liga speel.
Die o.12 en o.13-leerders speel in die o.13-liga.
While the fixtures on the term planner are the confirmed fixtures for the fourth term, we do have fixtures that can be added and\or removed in unforeseen circumstances. If fixtures do change, adequate notice will be given.
Vervoer vir spelers sal beskikbaar wees vir wedstryde wat weg gespeel word. Ouers moet ‘n aanduiding gee op die vervoerbriefie of hul kinders van vervoer gebruik gaan maak, al dan nie.
