Chance to Shine - Primary Schools

Chance to Shine is a grassroots national cricket initiative that was launched in 2005. The charitable organisation ‘Cricket Foundation’ set out to bring competitive cricket and its educational benefits to a third of state schools nationally (6,750) and two million children by 2015. The good news is that these initial targets have been achieved ahead of schedule. Chance to Shine has been delivering cricket to primary schools across Derbyshire since for 8 years and it continues to do so.

Cricket Clubs involved in the DCB Community Programme are allocated Chance to Shine coaching hours to help develop cricket in their local primary schools. Derbyshire Cricket Board coaches provide coaching and teacher support to those schools.
