Chance to Shine have developed a set of 'Skills Challenges' across key stages, each of which develops knowledge and application of skills, which contribute to being a successful cricketer.

Each skill is measurable and can be scored using our scoresheets (download below!) - the scoring system encourages children to beat their Personal Best and also work with others to create a team or house score.

The activities focus on developing Personal skills, such as perseverance, resilience and concentration.
