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.

If you are working with players in a ‘performance’ environment (an environment above club and school level) the Performance Coach Course could be perfect for you. The course helps coaches to further develop their players and their own coaching techniques, planning and communication skills.
