This year’s Yorkshire Tea National Cricket Week will run from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd June 2018. National Cricket Week is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the sport with children across the country and bring cricket into the classroom. It doesn’t need to be every day, just a suitable time during the week.
This year, Chane to Shine will email every school that signs up a pack of digital resources, to coach cricket on the playground, to use cricket in curriculum lessons and a specially designed party pack to hold a proper celebration of the sport.

Schools will also receive an exclusive discount code, giving 20% off the Chance to Shine’s official equipment supplier Gray-Nicolls, so you can get all the equipment you need for the week.
Chance to Shine will also distribute a physical copy of their brilliant coaching cards, to all schools who sign up before 1st June. These include different games and drills to improve children’s cricketing skills.
