Fun for high-school aged kids
MILO Super 8s is a fun-filled version of cricket for lower and middle secondary school children that maximises the involvement of all participants in a 16-over game (eight overs per team) that requires just 45 to 50 minutes from start to finish.
Carnival days include three round robin matches and a final and are generally conducted between 9.30am to 2.30pm at local venues around Victoria.
Cricket Victoria has been conducting this state-wide competition since 1998.
In 2012, over 250 secondary schools participated with 569 boys' and 375 girls' teams entered in the Victorian MILO Super 8s competition.
The MILO Super 8s competition has three levels: a year 7, year 8 and a Year 9/10 section with all sections having a girls' and boys' division.
The MILO Super 8s state-wide competition is:
- Free to all schools
- Modified cricket that maximises participation
- Played by boys and girls
- Teacher friendly with easy to understand rules
- Encourages team work, communication and leadership
- State finals for all divisions are held in November/December each year.
Schools that enter the MILO Super 8s state-wide competition can choose to have a free clinic from a Cricket Victoria qualified coach prior to the competition.
The clinic is aimed to teach the rules of the game, ground layout, strategies and tips.
