Armadale Junior Cricket Club is leading the way with other clubs across the state in providing the first autism inclusive cricket program for junior cricketers.
The program has been designed by the Autism Association of WA in a bid to help children with Autism to be included in their local cricket teams.
Autism Association of WA chief executive, Joan McKenna Kerr said the program provides children with autism a great chance to showcase the contribution they can make to sport.
“We know there can be barriers for kids with autism when it comes to sport but we also know how important it is for them to be involved in their local community in a meaningful way, ” she said.
“We applaud Armadale Junior Cricket Club for putting the program into practice.”
The program runs every Thursday from 4.30pm to 5pm for Master Blaster teams (eight to ten year olds) and 5pm to 6pm for Junior Blaster teams (five to seven year olds) at Gwynne Park, Armadale.
It will run until the end of term four and start again on February 6 before finalising on March 5th. For more information call Terry Pass on 0401 610 158 or visit autismincricket.com.au
