Cricket Information

Hutchins cricket

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, as well as being Australia’s head batting coach from 2013 to 2016. Sean Clingeleffer was a former Tasmanian wicketkeeper, scoring a hundred in Tasmania’s first Sheffield Shield win. Past students Caleb Jewell and Liam Devlin are also currently contracted to the Tasmanian Tigers.

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 each year, playing games against other EREA schools including St Patrick’s College in Ballarat and St Kevin’s College, Toorak.

In Term 1, the College runs a ‘Development programme’ for Grade 7 and 8 students on Monday nights. The programme focuses on developing players skills through various games and match-play scenarios, whilst encouraging the students to aim for First XI selection in future years at the college.  

Requirements

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 does not necessarily have to coach the side 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.

Uniform

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).

Competitions

2018 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.

Teams for all games will be posted on the College’s Sport Website – http://sport.stvirgils.tas.edu.au/
