Thank you so much for the wonderful cricket workshop today! Your coaches were very informative, professional, and enthusiastic, and the students thoroughly enjoyed the entire presentation. Also, I appreciate the cricket information and the ‘free’ cricket equipment. I will definitely incorporate cricket into my PE lessons! I am also going to speak with my PTA about organizing a cricket workshop after school for the students, perhaps after school one or two days a week. I will see about getting the PTA to help organize. Just let me know…..
