Chance to Shine - Overview
 
 
What's it all about...........

Chance to Shine is a national charity on a mission to spread the power of cricket throughout schools and communities. It takes cricket to new places and uses it to 
ignite new passions, teach vital skills, unite diverse groups, and educate young people from Cornwall to Cardiff to County Durham. This is only possible by working with the 39 county cricket boards across England and Wales.

At the heart of every Chance to Shine project is a cricket club. We are forging strong links between hundreds of primary and secondary schools and their local cricket club. In Devon we have worked with in excess of 40 clubs around the county over the last nine years, helping the club facilitate conversations to make sustainable links and build delivery programmes for primary and secondary schools geographically close to them.  Clubs have been provided with a delivery budget to send coaches in to run assemblies, competition and coaching sessions, with the end goal that the kids are inspired to take up cricket and join the local club. In 2014 alone we managed to get 130 new kids playing cricket in clubs on a regular basis.
