This five-year strategy is intended to grow the participation of Aboriginal people in all areas of cricket across the state, one part of which is through the delivery of skills-based clinics in regional and remote areas.
In the APY Lands, experienced MILO in2CRICKET facilitators visited schools in Fregon, Mimili, Ernabella, Amata and Indulkana, delivering fun and engaging cricket clinics to almost 250 children.
In the Far-West of South Australia, 130 students from Koonnibba, Yalata and Ceduna were also visited by SACA and invited to participate in learning basic cricket skills.
SANFL Indigenous Programs supported this venture, helping coordinate schools and chaperoning SACA staff to remote locations.
National Reconciliation Week - which runs from 27 May until 3 June - celebrates the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.
These regional and remote school visits have taken place in the lead-up to National Reconciliation Week, acknowledging SACA’s commitment to make cricket ‘A Sport For All’.
