Schools Cricket In Norfolk

Cricket Activity in schools is of course a critical part of the work of the Norfolk Cricket Board. The aim is to encourage opportunity and participation for children at all schools through all year groups. Suitable competitions are provided to reinforce the game and these are not only available in the summer, as there are several indoor winter competitions available.

The Norfolk Cricket Board work closely with the eight School Sports Partnerships (SSP's) and the School Games Organisers (SGOs) as well as Active Norfolk and Local Authorities in order to deliver a range of schools activity and competitions.

Activity may include coaching sessions, development days, Young Leaders courses, Cricket for Teachers courses, upskilling sessions and of course the critical area of linking schools to local clubs.
