At Chippenham CC we are keen to encourage youngsters to start playing cricket and through the Witchford School Sports Partnership have set up relationships with local primary schools. This has involved visiting schools to carry out cricket coaching, supporting after school events, and talking to the school children about cricket and the fun you can have playing it. In addition we invite the children to join our regular weekly sessions at Chippenham.
The Witchford School Sports Partnership approaches sport related clubs in the community to find out if they would be interested in making a ‘club and school link’. Their aim was to encourage more young people to access the clubs that are out there in our communities by advertising them as widely as possible.
To make a link with the Witchford School Sports Partnership, clubs need to demonstrate that their coaches, volunteers, and leaders are qualified to deliver the sport they are offering and have all of the relevant safety checks in place. It remains the responsibility of parents/carers to check the suitability of clubs for their children.
