We believe that competitive team sports can play an important role in the education of young people and a big part of our time is dedicated to working with a number of schools in the county to embed cricket across the curriculum.
Durham Cricket Board is committed to developing strong links with our primary schools. The school cricket programme is aimed at providing children aged five to eleven with a great first opportunity to play and learn through the game and support and collaborate with teachers to encourage additional opportunities to participate.
Chance to Shine is a national charity on a mission to spread the power of cricket throughout schools and communities.
In Durham, Chance to Shine is delivered by Durham Cricket Board through our expert team of professional coaches. Read about our partnership with Chance to Shine and the work we do together.
Through our work with schools via our Primary School Programme and Chance to Shine, entries into school cricket competitions continue to rise. We support and organise a range of competitions in partnership with our local School Games Organisers.
