Following on the from the huge success of last year (2017) we are delighted to say that we are once again offering schools the opportunity to attend the home the of Leicestershire Foxes.  The day will run from 9:30 am– 2:30 pm (or earlier if you need to get back to school). 

The day will still include some time in the classroom, a tour of the ground and a cricket session in our Indoor School. We will also tailor the day to meet the needs of your school and can modify the morning session accordingly.  We have the following resources available:

·         Curriculum based activities (literacy, numeracy etc.)

·         Health and Well Being

·         Added Values – behavioural and team work-based activities

In addition to last year each school that signs up for a classroom session will also receive 30 free child tickets (plus as many staff as the school need to bring) to attend a game here at The Fischer County Ground during the 2019 season and the cost for the Classroom session will be £125.00.

Leadership Training

As part of our school delivery programmes we offer schools bespoke leadership training to up-skill young people who can then provide support during coaching sessions, competitions and festivals.

Full details of our leadership training package can be downloaded here: Young Leaders

As part of our leadership training we also look to identify those young people who show a real aptitude and appetite to develop themselves and support beyond the school environment. These young people are offered opportunities to attend an ECB Cricket Activators course which is an accredited course. For more information about the coach education pathway please click here
