Empowering local people to develop and support projects that will enhance our shared communal spaces
The project will target the London Borough of Enfield’s deprived areas with little cricket provision and no infrastructure. The project is designed in the spirit of breaking down barriers faced by BME communities in accessing to sports. The project will target 35 BAYP people aged 13-25 in the London Borough of Enfield. The project will identify and signpost successful BAYP to mainstream cricket clubs in Enfield to help develop them further. Cricket sessions will be organised and delivered by the Community Coach in local nearest playgrounds to provide opportunities to play. 3 hour coaching sessions will be delivered every week for a period of 6 months, with one hour session for each community cricket club created. Participants will be facilitated to go to watch local cricket matches by helping with transport costs.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Not only will this be a fun introduction to cricket and provide equipment for communities where BAYP have not previously had access, but if successfully maintained, should provide improved scouting opportunities for the more talented BAYP. This project serves as a reminder of how sport has the potential to reach the doorstep of every Young people in the borough. The outcomes of this project will be further reaching in terms of: Improved BAPY health and well-being, acquiring essential life-skills, including communication, social tolerance, team-work and self-discipline. BAPY are encouraged to participate into adulthood either as players, coaches, officials or volunteers. BAPY are introduced to, and remain in, cricket.
