Chance to Shine Street

Chance to Shine Street is bringing cricket to thousands of young people in inner-city areas. It uses the game to promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities affected by anti-social behavior and youth crime.

We feel that every child, no matter where they live, should have the opportunity to enjoy cricket. Chance to Shine Street is a counter for a lack of clubs and green spaces in inner-city areas and aims to make cricket accessible to young people throughout the country.

During the sessions young people play a fast-paced version of tape-ball cricket, using a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape. Each innings lasts for 20 balls and games last for just 20 minutes. It needs very little cricket equipment and is ideal for inner-city venues.

Chance to Shine Street, formerly known as StreetChance, launched in 2008 to bring cricket to children in inner-city areas in London. In 2011/12, the programme was expanded to six more cities: Birmingham, Bristol, Dewsbury, Hull, Liverpool and Manchester.

It has now reached over 38,000 youngsters since 2008 and is taking cricket to new people in new areas that would otherwise miss out on the chance to play. 85% of participants since 2008 were not members of cricket clubs.

In 2012, the charity received a £1 million National Lottery grant from Sport England, which has allowed us to create sessions and run a national cricket league for 16-24 year olds.

Below are the boroughs and the contact details of the coaches that run Chance to Shine Street sessions, contact them to start playing today!

ECB City Cup

The ECB City Cup’s aims to engage young people living in inner cities throughout England, helping to retain young players who might otherwise been lost to the game due to; access issues, financial barriers or being late developers and therefore missing out on traditional performance pathways.

This competition offers an alternative pathway for young people with talent from inner city areas to access performance cricket in counties or via the MCC Young Crickets Programme.


CRITERIA FOR THE ECB CITY CUP
•    You must be aged between 16 and 24 years old
•    You must not currently play in the Middlesex County Cricket League (Division1) Club
•    You must live or play in Middlesex

Panther Communities

'BY THE COMMUNITY, FOR THE COMMUNITY'

The Panthers Communities Project is designed to identify, train and develop local people to deliver and facilitate quality coaching and match play opportunities for their communities. Insight gained from the Junior Panther Pilot highlighted the need to identify role models and coaches from the communities in which the activity is targeted. This helps to breakdown cultural barriers, increase channels of communication and raise confidence for participants.

  1. To identify and train borough residents to achieve a Coach Support Worker award, Safeguarding Young Cricketers certification and First Aid training.
  2. To deploy the successful Coach Support Workers to assist at local community participation sessions to achieve a minimum of 20 hours applied coaching experience.
  3. To identify and train candidates from each Borough to achieve a Level 2 certification in cricket coaching for young people.
  4. To implement new community participation sessions led by the newly qualified Level 2 coaches, in order to grow cricket participation opportunities in their communities.
  5. To increase the number of local competitive match-play opportunities via low cost innovative formats.
