The Northshore School District is excited to announce the second annual Northshore Cricket Tournament, with games taking place in late April through mid-May. Cricket is a game that is commonly played by students from and in India, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa, and more. The sport is becoming increasingly popular to the point that clubs have formed across the United States, including men’s and women’s U.S. National teams. In response to family requests, in June 2022, we offered the first Northshore Cricket Tournament, with nearly 200 middle and high school students participating. While it is not an official District sport at this time, staff are discussing this option for the future. This year, we will once again offer a free tournament after Spring Break in the same format as last year, which includes:
- Each student plays in at least two matches;
- Matches take approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes, from 5-8:30 p.m.;
- Matches will take place on fields at Leota Middle School or Skyview Middle School; and
- Divisions for students with experience (hard ball) and less or no experience (tennis ball) will be available.
- Due to high interest, the tournament is open for ONLY MIDDLE and HIGH SCHOOL students this year.
This tournament is meant to give all players a positive experience playing Cricket. We want to emphasize that this tournament is for fun and not a competition. We are excited to give you the opportunity to participate in scheduled games and enjoy playing Cricket with other students in our Northshore community. Games are tentatively scheduled for late April through mid-May 2023. Please complete the registration and informed consent form by Wednesday, March 22 to be included in this tournament.
We are planning to host a kick-off event and coaching session for all participants. The date and time for this kick-off and coaching session will be late April, with exact details to be announced soon. The coaching session is intended for students who have never played Cricket or have little experience. All are welcome to attend.
Please review the registration form and the rules associated with the tournament. We request that you read the rules and expectations carefully and commit to following them.
