Transcript of Sports Development Initiatives
Adam Dickens ALAS Sports Development Initiatives The 'Chance to Shine' initiative was brought into place to 'bring back the benefits of cricket to state schools'. The Cricket Foundation launched the initiative in May of 2005 and set out to bring competitive cricket - with its educational benefits - back to the minimum of a third of the country's state school initially over a ten year period.

To be able to learn new football skills and enjoy the game it's self. The initiative has been out since 2007 and has, to date, provided over 33 million child places on the programme. The great aim is to have 4.7 million children involved by 2014. In years gone, Hopwood Hall has been working in a partnership with other parties who want to promote boxing within young people.

Aroused interest from the Department of Media, Culture and Sport Investing in Young People - Boxing Derbyshire School's Sport Association (DSSA) is one of the countries longest - standing school sport associations. Within it's 70 year existence the DSSA has been a major driving force for competitive school sport in Derbyshire.
An example of this is within hockey, quite often the DSSA hold inter school competitions, mainly for the under 16 category. The 'Chance to Shine' initiative was brought into place to 'bring back the benefits of cricket to state schools'. The Cricket Foundation launched the initiative in May of 2005 and set out to bring competitive cricket - with its educational benefits - back to the minimum of a third of the country's state school initially over a ten year period.
'Chance to Shine' is now into it's 7th year and is using the power of cricket to help young people acquire important skills, values and attitudes. THIS CAMPAIGN IS NOT AIMED TO DEVELOP THE CRICKETING STARS OF THE FUTURE!
The campaign is national and it relies on corporate and individual charitable donations.
'Chance to shine' is delivered through individual projects working with the County Cricket Boards across England and Wales. Each of the projects provides a structured coaching and competition programme for a group of up to eight primary and secondary state schools. The group of schols is supported by professional, qualified coaches engaged by one local cricket club. The FA Tesco Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11s of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game. We’ve been providing high quality football coaching courses for children since 2007 and have to date provided over 3 million child places on the programme, aiming to reach 4.7 million children by 2014.
FA Tesco Skills is a nationwide initiative run by The Football Association and funded by Sport England and Tesco. We provide after-school football coaching, holiday football coaching, support for charter standard football clubs and we also work within primary schools providing specialist football coaching. Our aim is to develop better and more technically gifted football players but also to give every child the opportunity to be the best that they can be.
The FA Tesco Skills is based on a unique FA coaching model that helps boys and girls of all abilities to grow, develop their skills and to reach their potential. The FA four corner model encompasses four key attributes that are vital for any developing young footballer: Physical, Technical, Psychological and Social elements, helping children to develop more than just their football skills – we’ll help them to gain confidence, build self-esteem, learn to work as team and improve their decision making.
