Southern players Geoff and Mitch were selected in the Tasmanian team and Jason as the Assistant Coach, to play in the National Cricket Inclusion Championships (NCIC) competition recently held in Geelong , January 2018.
Spirits were high. The smell of snags and success was in the air. The contributing parties were all there, including LTT, to acknowledge this exciting, activated and unstoppable cricket-inclusion vision held by CT, Jason and the support sector.
This focused energy is creating lasting positive change, that goes far beyond batting and bowling, to participate and grow in the greatest game of all – life.

Cricket Australia’s National Inclusion Cup – 2018 Geelong.
The Cup is an excellent opportunity for players with a physical or intellectual impairment to play cricket in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, encouraging each other to be the best players they can be. By all accounts our team performed to a high standard, with many playing beyond their previous best with confidence and determination while applying themselves to the game in a competitive, fair and collegial way.
LTT are proud to offer a Sporting Chance Award acknowledging the Tas NCIC player who’s performed ‘Above & Beyond’ their previous best to significantly improve their personal development and contribute to the team’s overall success. Announced Feb 7 at our Ian Healy pre-game event at Wrest Point.
