Devon Cricket can help schools with their extra-curricular activities by providing welcoming, safe and fun clubs to benefit children of all ages and abilities.

We can offer breakfast, lunchtime or after school clubs run by qualified professional coaches with extensive experience of working with young people and ensuring that each individual who takes part gets the most out of the sessions.

In hectic schools, it can be hard for staff members to find the extra time to run clubs and activities, which is where we can help. We offer well-planned rewarding sessions as part of your extra-curricular programme to address inactivity issues highlighted by Public Health England:

“Children’s physical activity levels in England are alarmingly low, and the drop-in activity from the ages of 5 to 12 is concerning. Children who get enough physical activity are mentally and physically healthier, and have all round better development into adulthood” (1)

Cricket is not just for the summer term we can offer a range of breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs throughout the year. 

BREAKFAST CLUB

A perfect way to start the school day, giving children the opportunity to prepare their bodies and minds by participating in a wide range of cricketing activities. An active start boosts concentration levels and raises attainment (2).

LUNCHTIME CLUB

Lunchtimes are the perfect opportunity for children to get active. Research proves that children who are active at lunchtime behave better during afternoon lessons and are able to concentrate more for the duration of the school day (3).

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

After a day of structured learning children need to be able to release their energy. Our after-school clubs not only provides children with a wide range of cricketing activities, but offers parents peace of mind that they will be kept active and engaged by our qualified and experienced staff utilising the recently announced increase in PE and Sports Premium (4), why not take the opportunity to use our experienced coaches to enhance your extra-curricular offer.
