We are thrilled to announce that our second annual Cricket Classic between our brave teachers and our cricket-loving parents is back on! Last year the match was a huge success and we are eagerly looking forward to another wonderful event.
This year’s Cricket Classic has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 10th from 8am-12pm at Cimarron Park in Irving. All are invited to attend the game as spectators. Bring a camp chair and enjoy some socially-distanced community and friendly competition! Stay tuned for more details about the venue.
Interested in Joining the Parent Team?
Update: All slots on the parent team have been filled, but all are invited to come watch the match and cheer on our teachers and parents.
Our faculty has put together an enthusiastic team and we are now looking for dedicated players to join the parent team captained by your very own Mr. Chauhan. Space on the team is limited, and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. We have created a Sign Up Genius for you to let us know if you would like to play. Once you have signed up you will be contacted by Coach Chauhan regarding specific details.

In planning our Cricket Classic this year we gave considerable thought to what precautions it would be prudent for us to take to ensure all remain as safe as possible. We are happy to share those plans with you.
First, the match is being held outdoors, which has been shown to significantly increase safety. In addition, the area where we will be having the match is quite expansive and will allow plenty of room for spectators to spread out, socially-distanced from one another. This is all the more true for the sport of cricket, which is played on an oval-shaped field and can be watched from any angle.
In addition, all spectators are encouraged to wear masks at all times.
As for our players, since they will be sharing equipment, they will sanitize their hands before and after each match. In addition, cricket is a game which allows players to remain well apart from one another the vast majority of the time.
