How to Get Involved
The main Kwik Cricket competition is open to state primary and middle schools throughout England and Wales. Independent schools can enter their area competition at the discretion of their County Cricket Board. There are school competitions for Year 6, Year 5 and Year 4.
If you are a teacher, work in education or want to coach in education, we have a number of great courses to help you coach cricket in your school. These courses will not only give you the knowledge to teach cricket but will support you to bring high-quality PE into your curriculum.
There is no national competition for clubs, but we’d encourage you to organise your own local fixtures with other interested clubs.
Chance to Shine
Chance to Shine is a charity that provides free coaching and teaching resources for state schools. Since 2005, working in close partnership with all 39 County Boards in England & Wales and with hundreds of local cricket clubs, Chance to Shine have introduced the game and its educational benefits to millions of girls and boys. That’s a lot of playing and learning, and along the way Chance to Shine have learned a lot about how the game can inspire, engage and develop young people of all abilities. Now, for the first time, Chance to Shine have captured, documented and shared this learning.
The Chance to Shine programme has been developed as it’s been shown that cricket can be a powerful and lasting component of a young person’s learning and development, in turn bringing wider educational and social benefits
