The Devon Cricket Board is responsible for coordinating coaching activity in schools and community environments within Devon.
These opportunities include Chance to Shine coaching in schools, both during the school day and in after-school club programmes. The coaches are also involved with All Stars, Women's Softball and a number of competitions throughout the year.
Devon’s community coaches Damian Price, Jonny Varcoe, Niall Leahy and James Kemp are excited to be able to offer more coaching opportunities to the Schools around the county. The coaches will be available for curriculum coaching, lunchtime/after-school clubs or to help prepare your teams for the winter and summer competitions.
