Cricket has a long history at this College and is a very popular summer sport enjoyed by boys of all ages. The First XI travel and play in College fixtures from Dunedin to Timaru, and enjoy an annual visit to the Willows Cricket Club where they play against current and former Black Caps. There is also a bi-annual trip to Brisbane to compete in the Australasian Christian Brothers’ Tournament.
The cricketers at STC also get a wealth of knowledge and cricketing experience with members of staff with first class and senior cricket experience. Ben Rapson holds a level 3 coaching certificate and is the current Canterbury U19 coach. There is also excellent training and playing facilities on the College’s sports fields.
