Cricket Scotland’s Introduction to Cricket Coaching is a new short course, designed to help you take the first steps into coaching cricket.
The course aims to develop your confidence and give you the tools to support a club or school coaching session, with an emphasis on fun and safety.
This course has been designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach cricket sessions that are active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe.
An ECB Foundation I Coach will be qualified to lead coaching sessions independently and without supervision.
Coaching children’s cricket (aged 6 – 13) is an enormously rewarding role within the coaching pathway.
The courses on offer are designed to help to develop your confidence and equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to lead coaching sessions for children – and to create safe, fun, player-centred coaching environments.
Coaching Young People and Adults (aged 13+) is another enormously rewarding role within the coaching pathway.
The courses on offer are designed to help to develop your confidence and equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to lead coaching sessions for young people and adults – and to create safe, enjoyable, stimulating player-centred coaching environments.
The challenge for all coaches is to learn as they develop, just as players do. This programme will help you challenge your current coaching practice and further your knowledge and understanding in a variety of areas.
