!   Cricket teaches teamwork, leadership & respect !   Reaches into ethnic communities like no other sport !   It’s wholly inclusive !   Appeals to both genders !   Provides for those with disabilities !   Effective theme for learning across the curriculum

And yet in 2004 fewer than 10% of state schools provided any form of meaningful cricket…


!   3,344 schools registered !   378,000 participants !   177,000 from BME !   65,000 with special needs !   Over 5000 teachers involved !   1500 coaches involved !   103,000 hours of activity (83,000 hours delivered in schools) !   6400 children have joined a cricket club (23% girls)


“Process of social learning that occurs and shared practices that emerge and evolve when people who have common goals interact as they strive towards those goals.�


!   To increase and enhance the delivery of cricket in schools !   To enhance teachers skills and knowledge !   To develop core physical skills of young people !   To develop young people’s social skills through cricket !   Long term sustainability

Chance to shine in isolation would meet the needs of cricket, however, through its collective approach and multi-agency working hits a much wider agenda. This proves the concept of a Community of Practice is a more beneficial and effective method of working.
