School Ambassador Program

COVID-19 Update

The following school specific programs and events have been cancelled in response to the global coronavirus pandemic. This decision has been made in the context of advice from State and Federal Health departments suggesting that by taking these actions now we can contribute to slow the spread of the coronavirus to the broader community.

School specific programs and activities run by the WACA

  • Woolworths Cricket Blast Schools Cup
  • Woolworths Cricket Blast school-based programs
  • Gala Days

School specific programs and activities organised by schools (WACA staff will not be available to assist in delivery)

  • Sporting Schools Programs: If a school wishes to cancel or modify their program, please ask them to send an email to info@sportingschools.gov.au with the subject line of ‘Coronavirus Program Modification (School Name)’. A copy of the email should also be sent to sportingschools@cricket.com.au
  • Woolworths Cricket Blast Health and PE Programs
  • Intra Woolworths Cricket Blast School Cups


Organised School competitions run by the WACA

  • Kim Hughes and Graeme Wood Shields.
  • Specialised Sporting Schools Trials Day.

It is important to know that WACA staff will still be working and available to support you over email or phone and we welcome you to get in contact if you have any questions or concerns. Schools are also encouraged to complete programs by self/teacher delivery and reaching to WACA staff remotely for support where needed.

We are currently awaiting further advice in regard to sporting schools programs but I would encourage teachers to complete the remaining sessions of Term 1 programs (self-delivered).

SCHOOL AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

The Perth Scorchers School Ambassador Program aims to identify, recognise and develop a mutually beneficial partnership with a teacher in each Western Australian school who is passionate about ensuring their students have every opportunity to engage in sustainable, safe and organised physical activity in school and in the community.

The Program is WA’s top up version to the National Program, giving teachers the chance to take cricket to the next level in their school and rewarding them for their efforts.
