Secondary Schools

As an organisations our focus is to engage with Secondary Schools who have little confidence in delivering Cricket or those who are willing to work with us to engage with their students who don't have an interest in 'traditional' cricket. We want to ensure that Cricket is made as open and enjoyable as possible to all young people and recognise that hardball cricket isn't the only answer.

Naturally we still want to support the traditional format of the game and will offer advice wherever needed. All hardball competitions in Kent are run by the Kent Schools Cricket Association

Whilst we update the information on these pages, if you have any queries or would like to know what we can offer your school please contact james.moss.kent@ecb.co.uk 

Coaching & Teacher Training

We would love to hear from schools that would like to put Cricket back on the agenda. We are able to offer schools a combination of the following 3 areas:
  • Coaching & Competition
  • Teacher Training
  • Leadership Opportunities
We will never deliver a lesson without a teacher being present and engaged. Our aim is to enthuse and inspire young people to see the benefits of taking part in sport both formally and informally. In order for them to develop a passion for sport we need hope to empower them to make positive decisions, whilst also developing their physical literacy and confidence. 
If you would like to know more - please contact james.moss.kent@ecb.co.uk

Girls Competitions

We strongly encourage girls to take part in our boys competitions and the same message is found in community clubs as well. However we appreciate that in some scenarios, girls would rather play in single gender competitions and we don't want that to be a reason for them not trying, or continuing to play cricket.

Business Challenge

Our Business Challenge puts Young People in the driving seat, usually those in year 9 or above. A question is put forward about a business aspect of Cricket and then in groups, the young people are asked to research, discuss and then present their findings and solutions. 

In 2014 we asked young people...
  • Why is Cricket less popular in Secondary Schools compared with Primary Schools? What are the perceptions of students and staff? Make your proposals for how to tackle your findings.
In 2015 we asked young people...
  • What are the tangible benefits for young people who choose to volunteer within Cricket? Identify these examples and create a presentation suitable to be delivered to your own peer group.
