Coaching pathway

Your coaching journey

Cricket Scotland has a range of courses to help you on your coaching journey. From taking your first steps on the coaching pathway to advanced and specialist coaches, there`s a course to suit your needs

Coach and player development go hand in hand. Cricket Scotland are committed to improving our coaching workforce at all levels

ECB Foundation 1 Coach

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.

ECB Level 2 – Coaching Children’s Cricket

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.

ECB Level 2 – Coaching Young People and Adults

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.
