Cricket Information

One of the cornerstones of sport at St Virgil’s since 1911 has been cricket. Over recent years the number of teams has increased greatly and SVC is now recognised by the Tasmanian Cricket Association as the leading school in Tasmania for cricket participation. The College has seen a number of very talented cricketers pass through the grades the most recent being Michael Di Venuto who toured South Africa with the Australian One Day Team in 1997 and was captain of the Australian Super 8’s team in Malaysia and Sean Clingeleffer who was a former Tasmanian wicketkeeper and made a century in Tasmania’s first Sheffield Shield win.

Level of Participation

The College fields sides in Grade 7 to 10 of the High Schools competition conducted by the Southern SATIS on Monday (7&8) and Wednesday (9&10) nights in Terms 1 and 4 competing in a 20/20 competition. The 1st XI also tours Victoria in December each year.

In Term 1, the College runs a ‘Development programme’ for Grade 7 and 8 students on Monday nights. 


Apart from clothing, boys are not required to provide any equipment as the College supplies a kit for each team. It is always advantageous, however, if students have some of their own gear especially a protector and helmet.

A team will not be entered into a roster unless there is a parent or adult supervisor nominated for the team. This person need not necessarily be the coach but this is often the best situation. Team coaches are required and parents interested are asked to contact the Director of Sport.

Teams also require an umpire and a scorer.


St Virgil’s teams represent the College in the traditional cricket whites ( trousers, socks, and jumper) with the SVC cricket shirt or SVC polo shirt, white sandshoes and either the College cap or white, broad-rimmed floppy hat (Greg Chappell / Allan Border style).


2017 Cricket Development Programme 

As an introduction to cricket at St Virgil’s College, a development programme will be conducted in Term 1. The programme is skills and games based and will cater for boys of varying experience levels and will feature skills activities, internal games and games against The Hutchins School.


The programme will culminate on Saturday March 25 with two matches against The Hutchins School. Teams for these games will be picked from players who attend all sessions (or notify an apology), always try their best, demonstrate the spirit of cricket, whilst performing well in game situations.


Teams for all games will be posted on the College’s Sport Website –
