BSP School Kriket Programme

What is the BSP School Kriket Programme

The BSP School Kriket Programme, the largest Junior Sport Development Program in PNG and has gone from strength to strength since launching the programme in 2009.

In 2015, the BSP School Kriket Programme reached 235 schools, 111 clinics and 150,543 participants across ten (10) regions of PNG. The BSP School Kriket Blast was conducted in each region every term with over 5,500 boys and girls involved in the one (1) day competition. It was the third (3rd ) consecutive year that the program had 150,000 participants across the year.

Nearly half (6/14) HEBOU PNG Garamuts players that competed in the 2015 ICC EAP Under 19 Trophy came through the BSP School Kriket Programme and also nearly half (7/15) of the PNG “A” Team that competed at the 20-15 Pacific Games came through the program as well.

How will the program work?

The program will be delivered in schools and communities across PNG by CPNG Regional Cricket Managers (RCMs) and CPNG Development Officers (DOs).

The twelve (12) week program will be conducted in schools and communities, consisting of five (5) stages.

Stage 1 – BSP School Kriket Education Program

CPNG RCMs and DOs conduct the BSP School Kriket Education Program for all teachers/community leaders who will be involved in the BSP School Cricket Program. The aim of this program is to educate and up-skill teachers/community leaders who will be able to conduct cricket programs after CPNG Staff have finished their program.

Stage 2 – BSP School Kriket Introductory Visit

CPNG RCMs and DOs coordinate a visit with schools/communities who will be involved with the program for the term. The aim of the visit is to introduce the program to the school/community by demonstrating a lesson which will be conducted by the CPNG Staff as a part of the program. This is very for a school who hasn’t been involved in the BSP School Kriket Program in the past.

Stage 3- BSP School Kriket Lessons

The students will be involved in prepared lessons from the BSP School KriketLesson Plans. These lessons are delivered by the CPNG RCMs, CPNG DOs, teachers and volunteers. The CPNG RDMs will be required to visit each school fortnightly to review progress and meet with the key contact of the school to ensure that the program is going well.

Stage 4- BSP School Kriket Grid Games

CPNG RCMs and DOs will be coordinating the BSP School Kriket Grid Games within the schools/communities. The CPNG RDMs will be required to visit each school fortnightly to review progress and meet with the key contact of the school to ensure that the program is going well.

Stage 5- BSP School Kriket Blast

CPNG RCMs and DOs will be coordinating the BSP School Kriket Blast, which is an inter-school cricket competition played on one day, involving all the schools/communities that have participated in the program in that particular term. Each Blast will include four (4) divisions- Under 13 Boys, Under 13 Girls, Under 15 Boys and Under 15 Girls. CPNG will be awarding trophies.
