partner-logoChance to Shine is a charity whose scheme was first launched in 2005. Chance to shine have a belief in the power of cricket and want every young person in the country to have the opportunity to play and learn through the sport. Chance to Shine funding subsidises the free element of our cricket delivery allowing us to provide value for money with our high quality programmes.

In Leicestershire this programme is delivered by a team of Cricket Development Coaches employed by LCCC who are well supported by coaches from clubs across the county.

Chance to Shine is a fully inclusive programme and as such LCCC delivers cricket to boys and girls in mainstream and SEND state schools including SEND units and schools. We also aim to establish and develop existing links to clubs that cater for all groups. More information can be found on the ClubMarked clubs around the county here and junior clubs currently in the Leicestershire and Rutland Youth League here.

LCCC delivered cricket in 62 schools in 2016/17 and will be looking to deliver the New Primary School Programme to 67 in Primary schools in 2017/18 in order to offer cricket to children and young people at the appropriate level.
