The Indiana Youth Cricket Association has recently rolled out State-wide Cricket Study Guide that included the Cricketing Terms Glossary which will help teachers to follow with the unified cricket curriculum.

INYCA president Jatin Patel disclosed that “teachers have reached out and provided assistance by rewriting a helpful and easy to use Cricket Study Guide within their schools most often referred to as the US English version. The INYCA has been actively involved in school and youth cricket in Indiana since 2010. Later, it established “Basics of Cricket” and “Introduction to Cricket” certifications for Indiana physical education teachers, which is now available online.” 

Cricket is a complicated sport as the internet provides various instructional guidelines, but rather than being helpful it poses difficult challenges for those that are not well diverse and knowledgeable about the game. Now it has become necessary to set standards pertaining to the game to help educate our teachers and scholars in simplest form so, everyone can be in unison by following the same guidelines.  The main objective here is to reach as many schools as feasible, to provide the necessary information required to play the game, and to educate the PE teachers.

Jatin Patel is also, 2nd Vice President United States Youth Cricket Association and pioneered the education for school and community cricket in Indiana.

Jatin Patel admitted that “It would have been impossible to accomplish such a goal without the following teachers. All of them exposed to cricket during the past two years to become Indiana certified cricket coaches / instructor and expanding their cricket knowledge while doing their vital contributions to our state wide cricket projects and teaching cricket during school PE classes.  We applaud them, graciously.

Cricket Study Guide with Cricketing Terms Glossary – 1st Revision Authors and Contributors are Stan Heidi  (Hamilton Southeastern Schools), Kelley Newman (Beech Grove Schools), Eileen Richards (New Albany Floyd County Schools), Mathew Shirk (Indianapolis Public Schools), Kristine Stafford  (Avon Schools), Katherine Langdon ( Indianapolis Public Schools), Paul Newman ( Other, Beech Grove Schools connection) and coach Jatin Patel.

Besides educational work many Indiana teachers will be part of finalizing T10 inter school cricket game rules. During 1st phase cricket players and coaches in Indiana, contributed with their thoughts which were combined with the teacher’s survey to find the best possible solutions for the cricket which can match with many other American sports.

Jatin Patel explained that “Indiana Inter School T10 Cricket version will focus on “Equal opportunity for all players” & “No One Left behind - School policy” which are well known in US culture and create fun full environment with the high intensity level in real short time of 90 minutes or less for the entire game. INYCA plan to host inaugural Indiana-School T10 Cricket Tournament with the official state championship during 2015 Spring/summer season.
