Chance to Shine – Primary Schools Programme
Leicestershire County Cricket Club continue to deliver the FREE Primary Schools Programme that supports the National Curriculum. The programme which has been produced in collaboration with Create Development and Chance to Shine, aims to provide all young people the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket.
In partnership with Chance to Shine, we inspire children to be excited about the sport. We teach pupils how to play cricket and ensure that they learn academic and life skills whilst they take part. We support staff to teach the sport, so that they develop a culture of cricket within their school. We encourage schools to compete, internally or taking part in a local tournament, and help children to take the next steps to progress on their cricketing journey.
