At the Hobart Hurricanes we pride ourselves on being a big part of the local community.
Through a range of programs and initiatives here in the Tasmanian community, we aim to be not just a cricket team, but an organisation which is fundamentally identified as part of Tasmanian culture.
Hurricanes Holiday Camps
A Hurricanes Holiday Camp is the perfect way to entertain the kids during school holidays. These fun, healthy and interactive cricket clinics include heaps of age-specific activities and are the perfect way to entertain kids aged 7-10 years. All our clinics are run by professional accredited Hurricanes staff.
Hurricanes Indigenous Program
The Hobart Hurricanes are proud to announce the introduction of an Indigenous Program which will provide even greater opportunities for Indigenous cricketers in Tasmania.
Through the Indigenous Program, players who identify as being of Indigenous heritage are exposed to a high-performance environment with the hope of representing the Hurricanes in the future.
The Captain's Challenge has been developed to assist Kindergarten to Year 2 students around Tasmania achieving 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity activity on most days of the week as outlined in the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines.
The Captain’s Challenge achieves this by spending 10 minutes per day developing fundamental motor skills that will assist them in remaining physically active later in life.
The Hurricanes Foundation has been established to place our cricket community – the kids, the clubs and the fans – first.
We are doing this by supporting:
- Community programs
- Great fundraising initiatives
- Community facility improvements and,
- Cricket participation across our state of Tasmania
We are transforming the Hurricanes brand into a platform for social change that is more than just about winning games.
