School Cricket Category
Schools are the starting block in our aim to give all children the opportunity to play cricket.
The LCB employs coaches who work with partners to deliver cricket activities within schools both in curriculum time and as extra-curricular activity. More details of how schools can get involved with these programmes can be obtained from LCB Cricket Development Managers. News of various schools cricket development programmes and activities are provided in this section.
