CRICKET WITH SURREY COUNTY CRICKET CLUB
Surrey is encouraging students applying for sixth form studies in September 2024 to apply for the Club’s new Sixth Form State School Cricket Programme at Harris Academies across Surrey including:
- Harris Academy Merton
- Harris Academy Purley
- Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich
Chief Executive at Surrey Cricket, Steve Elworthy, said “We’re delighted to be working with some fantastic schools in the county to support young people from state schools to learn more about a career in cricket whether that’s on or off the pitch. This programme will help the students to improve their cricketing skills but also help to develop the valuable life skills that will support them in their future careers.”
The programme is available to young people, both male and female, that have a developing talent for cricket and are looking to take their skills to the next level. It will also support those that want to learn more about a career in the sport.
Surrey is currently working with Harris Federation to offer students the opportunity to complete their sixth form academic studies alongside access to high quality cricket coaching and full strength and conditioning programme.
There will also be opportunities for those on the programme to learn more about cricket as a business via the employability workshops which offers opportunity for the students to learn more about roles associated with professional sport such as Marketing, Media, Grounds keeping and Hospitality.
All students will undertake ECB coaching qualifications alongside certified courses in scoring and umpiring, to support students to gain employment within the world of cricket.
SCCC cricket applications are open now, along with the application to attend a cricket trial in October Half term.
