State School cricket programme for 9-12 year olds starts this September


The Surrey Slam Schools programme re-starts for its 4th year next month.


It's aimed at providing state school students with additional cricket to help them close the gap between them and their independently educated peers who, we estimate, receive as much as 100 hours additional cricket each year.


Training takes place over the winter months in 11 borough venues across Surrey and South West London.


Players must be at state school to be eligible and going into any of years 4-8. They should ideally also be playing for a cricket club outside school


There are over 35 hours coaching across the year rounded off by hard ball matches next summer at times to allow them to still play for their cricket clubs.
