Children will have the opportunity to learn about cricket from some of the best these school holidays.

Steve Waugh Cricket clinics will return to Bradman Oval during December and January.

The program will cover core cricket skills including batting, bowling, wicketkeeping and fielding.

Children will also learn about other aspects of cricket such as strategy, tactics, teamwork, health, fitness and nutrition.

The Steve Waugh Cricket coaching team includes Duncan Kerr, Greg Small, Corey Richards, Simon Gould and Alex Kemp.

Bradman Museum volunteer and ex-Australian cricketer Tina Macpherson encouraged children to get involved.

“It’s an intensive couple of days,” she said. “It’s a fun time, the children can learn a lot and there’s good coaching staff here.”

A two-day pre-Christmas clinic will run from Thursday, December 21 to Friday, December 22.

A three-day summer clinic will run from Tuesday, January 16 to Thursday, January 18.

Steve Waugh Cricket ran a clinic at Bradman Oval in October. The clinics will return to Bradman Oval during the December and January school holidays.
