What is Super 1s?
Super 1s gives young people with a disability aged 12-25 the chance to play regular, competitive cricket. By creating community cricket hubs where young people can receive coaching, we give participants the chance to compete against their peers and enjoy the benefits of playing sport.
How does it work?
For many young people with a disability, loneliness has been identified as a major issue, and opportunities to take part in regular competitive sport can be extremely limited. Super 1s provides these opportunities and helps young people realise their potential. It improves their physical and mental well-being, giving a sense of belonging as they make friends and gain skills for life such as confidence and independence. The competition provided by Super 1s gives participants a real sense of achievement, with many of the county and regional finals being held at iconic cricketing venues including Edgbaston, Emirates Old Trafford and Lord’s.
How does it help young people?
Super 1s provides young people with a chance to realise their potential, both on and off the pitch. Many of the young people who have been engaged in the programme now act as role models for the next group of participants, whether as a player, coach or volunteer. This is a crucial element of the programme, as it empowers the young people to realise what they can achieve.
