One of Cricket NSW's core objectives is to ensure that Australia's favourite sport has an impact at all levels of education.
Cricket NSW is committed to working together with schools to help promote a healthy, active lifestyle amongst school-aged children. The purpose of Cricket NSW’s school programs is to ensure Cricket is used as a vehicle to drive a whole school approach towards promotional of healthy, active lifestyles.
The School Ambassador program provides the perfect opportunity for members of the school community to be the primary point of contact for Cricket NSW.
