Chance to Shine
OCS gives young people a Chance to Shine
OCS is proud to support the Chance to Shine Final, where each year children from schools in Surrey and London spend a day playing cricket at The Kia Oval.
The scheme, set up in 2005, recognises the power of cricket to help young people to acquire important skills, values and attitudes. It is part of an annual Cricket Foundation project to bring competitive cricket and its educational benefits to state schools and is delivered through County Cricket Boards across England and Wales. Each project provides a structure coaching and competition programmes for up to eight primary and secondary state schools.
As a continued supporter of the Chance to Shine final at Surrey County Cricket Club, OCS provides equipment and training for teachers and coaches, as well as lunch, t-shirts, goody bags and medals for the young cricketers.
