The Jersey Cricket Board are delighted to announce two new creative, engaging and inspiring initiatives to get more
girls and women into sport through the vehicle of cricket.
Our first initiative 'Crick-fit on the beach' is aimed at primary schools girls in years 2 to 6, currently an under represented population. Working in co-operation with Crick-fit we are
utilising our beautiful beaches as a playground for fun, interaction through games and key skills.
'Summer Nights 4 Maidens' hopes to inspire and introduce more girls and women to cricket in a fun and creative environment. Drawing on all principles surrounding why girls and women participate in sport, Summer Nights hopes to bring enjoyment, friendships, fun and laughter.
Girls and women's development officer Gemma Dunning said "After reviewing previous years initiatives and carrying out extensive research into why girls and women participate in sport we are delighted to offer two new initiatives to encourage participation. We hope that they offer the opportunity to play sport in a fun and engaging manor and will help us to break down barriers to participation"
