Super 1s

The Lords Taverners Super 1s programme gives young people aged 12-25 with a disability the chance to play regular competitive cricket while improving confidence and independence.

Hampshire Cricket Board runs a number of Super 1s sessions around the county where young people can recieve free coaching, compete against their peers and enjoy the benefits of playing sport.

How does it help young people?

  • Provides young people with a chance to realise their potential, both on and off the pitch
  • Improves participants physical and mental well-being
  • Combats loneliness by taking part in regular competitive sport
  • Gives a sense of belonging as they make friends and gain skills for life such as confidence and independence
  • Engagement in a variety of workshops allows crucial life-skills to be learnt
  • Progression for young people from participant to role model, whether as a player, coach or volunteer.
