Coaching Courses

Cricket Scotland has a range of courses to help you on your coaching journey. From beginner coaches to elite performance, 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

Below is some basic information on the courses on offer and you can register by clicking on the appropriate box above.

Coach Support Worker

The entry level course is the ‘Coach Support Worker’ course. The course is designed to help to develop your confidence and equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to support a qualified coach during coaching sessions.  It will help you to create a great environment for coaching to take place in.

  • The course lasts 6 hours and there is no formal assessment – but you need to be at least 16 years old to attend the course.



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.

 

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.

 

Performance Coaching

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.  For more information please contact Cricket Scotland’s Performance Pathway Manager, Gordon Drummond: gordondrummond@cricketscotland.com

 

Funding Support

We are aware that your coaching journey does come at a cost – but don`t worry there are support networks available.

The main source of support available is through sportscotland – the National Agency for Sport.  Coaches are able to apply for a ‘UKCC Subsidy’ for Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 courses.  Full information is available via sportscotland HERE

It`s also worth noting that your Local Authority or Sports Council may offer funding support as well. Useful links below:
