This project provides children from local schools with an introduction to cricket. Children are offered a day at the county ground, starting with a tour of the ground and providing lessons in curriculum subjects on site in the afternoon. This adds fun to normal learning and finishes up with the children receiving an afternoon of coaching in the indoor nets. The club follows up with coaching at the schools which culminates in a tournament for the 25 participating schools at the county or nursery grounds. Local cricket clubs are geared up to follow up interest through membership and coaching.
