Incrediball is a modified 8-aside game of cricket using a soft ball / plastic equipment suited for children who understand the basics of cricket or have reasonably developed hand-eye coordination.

$35 per player – schools to collect fees, Rotorua Cricket will invoice each school for their players.
Mixed genders and all equipment is provided
Incrediball teams are required to have a coach and someone to score / umpire
Schools ideally register a whole ‘team’, but if not, I’ll try to form ‘composite’ teams to ensure all children get a chance to play.

Hardball Cricket (for years 4-6) Register through the school

Our Hardball season runs from October 2022 to March 2023, but we may have spaces in existing teams for additional players
Hard cricket ball, wooden bats and protective (helmets, gloves, batting pads etc) are to be used, along with a hard cricket ball.
Hardball teams are 8-aside, mixed gender – everyone bat and bowls equally
If we are able to place players, the cost would be $35 per player for the ‘half’ season
Games start at 9am on Saturdays and are played in either Rotorua and occasionally Tokoroa, Taupo or Whakatane.

Games will resume on Saturday 12th February – so please let me know ASAP if you have a player or two who wish to join a team.

IMPORTANT: All previous sports/event fees must be paid or arrangements made before your child can participate in sports for Term 1. If you need assistance with your child's sports fee's please contact Shanelle McCashin at sports@stmarysrotorua.school.nz or Mr Macmillan at principal@stmarysrotorua.school.nz
