Hodsons – Proud to Support the MCC Foundation

We are very proud to support the Wakefield Hub of The MCC
Foundation. Founded in 1993, The MCC Foundation is the charitable arm of
the Marylebone Cricket Club and aims to transform lives through cricket.

 

The Foundation runs a
network of cricket Hubs that provide free-to-access training and match play to 
3,000 state-educated young
cricketers
 at 77 sites across the UK including a
very successful Hub here in Wakefield. The Hubs focus on talent: helping
promising youngsters who have been engaged through mass participation
activities or non-traditional formats to join cricket clubs, develop their
hard-ball skills, and access the formal talent pathways.

The Hubs also have a transformational impact off
the cricket pitch, helping participants to feel happier and more confident, and
improving their focus and performance at school.

Our plan aims to improve
representation at all levels of the game, spanning grassroots, talent, and the
coaching workforce. Initiatives include:

  • Supporting coaches from under-represented
    backgrounds to obtain a L1 or L2 coaching qualification
  • Funding a mentor to provide additional
    support to ensure none of our beneficiaries slip through the cracks
  • Running specialist training led by
    inspiring role models to empower more young people from under-represented
    backgrounds to progress into county age groups squads
