The Gloucestershire Cricket Board is committed to working in as many schools as possible in order to try and make cricket the sport of choice.
As well as delivering coaching programmes in primary, secondary and SEN schools we also run competitions and provide training and development opportunities for staff and students.
In the last year alone, our qualified coaches delivered sessions in more than 200 schools through the Chance To Shine scheme and GCB strategic projects.
