Spring/Summer Chance to Shine Programme

In the lead up to the Cricket season and throughout the season, schools can get involved in a Chance to Shine programme. These programmes are for both boys and girls but can be a great way of introducing girls to cricket for the first time. The spring/summer Chance to Shine programmes can be delivered at any point between January and July and consist of the following:

There is a small cost to being involved with this Chance to Shine programme. If your school would like to get involved in this Chance to Shine programme please contact Ali Goddard at ali.goddard@wiltshirecricket.co.uk or 07786 361222.

Secondary School Cricket

What do we do?

Wiltshire Cricket is very aware that girls could choose to get involved in Cricket at any age. A big role for Wiltshire Cricket currently is increasing girls cricket coverage in secondary schools so that Cricket is seen as a real option for girls within that 11-16 year age group.

Secondary School Offer

Wiltshire Cricket is fortunate to have a community coach, dedicated to working within the secondary school environment. Josh Boulton, our community coach, is available to deliver the following programmes for girls cricket in secondary schools:

  • Curriculum coaching support
  • An after school club
  • A satellite club - this is a club based on a school site but delivered for anybody from the local community to attend. Satellite clubs typically take place between 5pm - 6pm.

To access any of the above programmes please contact Josh Boulton at joshua.boulton@wiltshirecricket.co.uk or 07776 992900. Please note that through the secondary school offer we can also offer informal or formal teacher training and can run training courses for students.

Looking for a competition?

If your school is keen to enter a competition then we have lots of different opportunities and we can tailor the above coaching programmes to prepare your school for its competition. For details of the girls competitions available in Wiltshire please visit our girls school competition page.
