“Hi – I’m Steve Fitzgerald, and I’m the proud founder of Cricket tots!
Cricket tots started in 2016. It came into being because we’re an active family who love to do things together – and cricket plays a large part in that.
Being Australian, cricket was one of the first things I wanted to teach our son, Will, from as early as possible.
I couldn’t find any classes to take him to, and everything has grown from there.
I’m a huge believer in starting kids early because it has so many benefits for them. It means that they learn so much more than the technical aspects – they also get to learn about teamwork.
I saw how Will could pick up just about anything. When people say that children are like sponges, I really do know what they mean. He was incredible! I get as much pride from our classes today as I did from teaching Will when he was little.
And as the founder, I’m particularly proud that a huge percentage of our cricketers are girls. Cricket is definitely not just for boys, and the fact that we have a number of female coaches really brings this to life.
I hope you’ll come to love being part of the Cricket tots family as much as we love teaching you all.
We really do bounce out of bed each morning, looking forward to the things we will learn from the kids as much as they learn from us!”Steve
