Chance To Shine
The Usman Khawaja Foundation’s Chance to Shine Cricket Program is an introductory off-season program for those new to the game featuring developmental hubs and a national Usman Khawaja Cup. The program is intended to reach and engage primary school aged girls and boys in particular those from non-traditional cricketing communities.
- In 2018 over 300 kids participated in the ‘Chance to Shine Cricket’ program across 5 HUBs (4 in NSW and 1 in QLD).
- In 2019, the ‘Chance to Shine Cricket’ saw 814 participants register as the program expanded to 14 HUBS across NSW, QLD and the ACT.
- In 2020 no programs were conducted due to COVID-19.
The Usman Khawaja Foundation is enthusiastic to provide education support to participants (and in certain circumstances non participants in need) by providing educational support materials.
