Through the Spring and Summer terms the IOMCA have been proving girls cricket taster sessions at King William's College, Ramsey Grammar School and Castle Rushen High school. Over 300 different girls participated in cricket in their games lessons. After school clubs and community sessions were provided as an outlet for the girls which also recorded good numbers.
Tracey Mooney, Head of Girls PE, Ramsey Grammar School 'I can't thank you enough for allowing our students to experience working with the IOMCA Community Coach. Sally has been inspiring young girls to get involved in cricket through fantastic training sessions in Games lessons throughout the summer term, offering after school clubs and links to community cricket sessions, which our girls have thoroughly enjoyed. Sally has been committed, engaging and enthusiastic while working with our students and we as a staff have enjoyed developing our own teaching ideas.
On behalf of all the Ramsey Grammar School girls, thank you for the wonderful opportunity - I hope we can continue to work together in the future to increase participation and interest in female cricket'.
