Resources:

To support the ‘Superstarter Skills’ New Zealand Cricket has designed a high quality resource for teachers to use to develop and test a set of fundamental movement skills with their year 7 and 8 students. It fits easily into the ‘Health and Physical Education’ programmes, covers curriculum objectives for both Level 3 and 4, and can be used in conjunction with the current ‘Small Ball’ and ‘Striking’ units, or it could be used as a standalone module. Each lesson is accompanied with appropriate teaching points, drills, assessment activities and recording schedules.

Teachers require only limited cricket knowledge to organise and run the preliminary drills and testing activities as they are skills-based. Similarly only a minimal amount of equipment is needed to conduct the ‘Superstarter Skills. All the drills and activities have been set up to run using readily accessible New Zealand Post Superstar Cricket Academy equipment and balls.

For each of the skills included in the ‘Superstarter Skills’ there are a number of easy to organise and run drills that teachers can use to increase the various skill competencies of their students before presenting them with the final challenges. For each challenge students record their performance and then depending upon their aggregate score for all five challenge activities they will be awarded a bronze, silver or gold certificate in recognition of their efforts.

The ‘Superstarter Skills’ can also be used as an interschool or interclass competition. The aggregate ‘Superstarter Skills’ scores of each student can be added together for each school team or class, or they can be averaged, to get an overall school or class total score – the highest of which can be awarded the title of ‘top’ school or class.

The ‘Superstarter Skills’ resources and certificates are available from New Zealand Cricket at email info@nzcricket.org.nz or through Hamilton Cricket, email info@hamiltoncricket.co.nz.
