Chance to Shine Street
Chance to Shine Street brings together young people and gives them the opportunity to learn and play cricket.
The concept is to inspire young people across the county and to give them access to cricket, whilst promoting social cohesion and creating opportunities in diverse communities, which might also be affected by youth crime or anti-social behaviour.
The sessions aim to reach those throughout the country who otherwise might have had no access to cricket. They are inclusive to people of all backgrounds, are created so that there is no need for a lot of equipment and can be played easily to include everyone. Chance to Shine Street aims to give a new fast, fun feel to cricket that can be played almost anywhere.
Beginning in 2008, the projects inception was in London and has been growing ever since, with sessions expanding to Batley, Birmingham, Bristol, Dewsbury, Hull, Liverpool and Manchester.
In 2012, Chance to Shine received a £1 million National Lottery grant from Sport England, which allows the project to reach young adults aged 16-24.
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation will be working closely with The Yorkshire Cricket Board and Chance to Shine to showcase the sessions that take place in Yorkshire, specifically centres in Batley, Dewsbury and Hull.
