Spirit of Cricket

Our Player Values

Fun first and continuously learning - our players play to have fun and enjoy cricket. Our players listen to learn and look for opportunities to enhance and develop their skills. They're supported to try new things and take risks. When things don't go to plan, they reflect on what they can do differently next time and stay positive. 

Integrity and respect - our players play with integrity and respect and display these qualities on and off the field. They acknowledge excellent play by teammates and the opposition and keep their comments positive. They respect all officials, the opposition, and supporters. 

Be your best - our players are encouraged to be their best, setting goals and contributing to the team. Our players demonstrate a team first attitude. 

Spirit of Service – our players are encouraged to support one another and help each week with setting up the field to play, supporting younger players and giving back where they can.
