Streaky Bay holiday program a success

The South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) wants to return to Streaky Bay in 2021 after a successful Adelaide Strikers School Holiday Program this week.

The program took place in Streaky Bay for the first time, with 35 children aged five to 10 involved over two days at Streaky Bay Oval.

SACA's Eyre Peninsula club and participation officer Brayden Frost said they enjoyed their stay in Streaky Bay.

"It was really good, we had a great time up there running the program and the kids seemed happy and were really well behaved," he said.

"We were quite happy with how it all went and there were some good players involved.

"We had a few who played in the Quality Wool Cup and it was good to see them out there - they were helps for us and almost took on a leadership role helping out some who were struggling, and developing the other kids in the group."

Mr Frost said Streaky Bay was a town they were pleased to visit for the first time and that the response to the program was pleasing.

"It's a great area where we can see good cricketers coming out of," he said.

"Thirty five was a good number for the first time, we had kids from all over the region, a lot from Streaky, one from Poochera, a few from Ceduna, and a few from Melbourne who were over in Streaky Bay."

Suzie Kenny, who is involved with cricket in Streaky Bay, said the program went well.

"There was a great number of participants and we were rapt to have them come and visit our town," she said.

"To expose kids our way - because we are so remote - and to give them an opportunity so they don't have to travel was fantastic and we might get more cricketers from it."

Mr Frost said SACA wanted to return for another session next year.

"We absolutely want to come back and would be more than happy to do another session."
