Cricket at MDJH

Cricket is a very widely played sport in many countries and is gaining popularity in Canada. New members are invited to participate in learning this sport.

We will practice batting, bowling and fielding activities during our sessions. We will also have brief sessions to introduce the fundamental rules of the game. Students who would like to play only need a pair of gym shoes.  No experience with the sport is necessary as we will begin with basics. While the purpose is to have fun while developing Cricket skills, we also intend to develop a team that would play matches with teams from other schools in future.

In order to gauge interest and to get a sense of numbers beforehand, we would appreciate if you could email us if your child is interested in playing.  Please respond to by Monday, October 21.  We would like to begin the sessions on Monday, October 21.
