Dear schools & SGOs,
We’re delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Sussex Cricket Foundation Virtual Schools Cup! We’re very excited about this new competition which we are delivering this winter in partnership with Chance to Shine & our community partner, 1st Central Insurance.
Following the recent Government announcement of further national restrictions, we have had to take the tough decision to temporarily suspend all of our coaching programmes in schools and the community. Our normal Winter Indoor Competitions programme will also not be going ahead.
However, we see this virtual competition as a fantastic vehicle to keep; schools, teachers & children actively engaged in cricket throughout lockdown and beyond!

Open to any children that go to school in Sussex, Year 6 & below
- 10 Weekly Skills Challenges beginning Monday 9th November – instructional videos filmed by our community coaching team
- We want every child to have-a-go at each weekly challenge (at home or at school) and send in their scores using this Scoring Form*
- Teachers can also send in scores for their whole class, if group activity takes place at school as well!
- All scores submitted will represent the relevant school & Sports Partnership Area on the weekly county Leaderboards
- There will be prizes for the Weekly Winners, the overall Winning School & the overall Winning School Sports Partnership
