Chance to Shine is a Charity that funds County Cricket Boards around the county to deliver in Primary Schools for FREE. In Northamptonshire, we work with around 70+ schools delivering 6-week programmes and taster days.

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.

Our coaches support school staff to deliver cricket sessions once a week for a six-week period and aim to develop the all-round skills of the children they work with, whilst improving the confidence of school staff to deliver sessions independently.

The sessions are specifically designed for the different ages and abilities of the children. They also make sure that, whether it’s the very first time a child has picked up a bat and a ball or if they play regularly at their local club, everyone learns and improves during the lesson.

The sessions ensure that children are achieving the skills they need, as set out in the national curriculum, like throwing, catching and ball-striking; and are enjoying themselves at the same time.
