Successful September For YCF
Over the past few weeks the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation has celebrated the return of a number of projects in and around the community.
Throughout September, Wicketz sessions took place across Hull and saw over 25 participants take part in the sessions. Wicketz is a community cricket programme targeted at young people and funded by Lords Taverners.
The Yorkshire Cricket College also welcomed a new cohort of students to study for a NCFE Level 3 in Sport. The NCFE programme incorporates students passion for cricket, coursework-based assessments, and vocational work experience. With a 100% pass rate and over 50% achieving distinction or distinction star grades in 2020, the college format allows students to reach their potential and provides a springboard for the next stages of their lives.
The return of Walking Cricket was also deemed a success and saw 22 participants take part in an adapted version of the game.
The sporting reminiscence sessions which take place on a Thursday afternoon at 2pm have continued to grow and it has been fantastic to hear memories and stories from sporting matches.
All YCF projects have adhered to the ECB and government guidelines in relation to social distancing and COVID-19 measures.
Stay tuned for further details of new and existing sessions and initiatives which will be released in the coming weeks.
