How we support physical wellbeing 

We make physical education fun 

Through cricket, children develop a positive relationship with sport.

We make sport inclusive

We include everyone, from those who love sport to those who are less keen to get involved 

We help young people gain confidence 

Coaches ensure young people have a fun experience and develop their skills gaining the confidence and motivation to continue playing 

We target areas where cricket is needed most

We choose to work in areas where we know children are less active 

Fun for all

Our programmes are designed to help children to develop positive attitudes towards sport.
