The Performance Coach Course aims to develop and equip coaches with the knowledge, skills and thinking to work effectively in performance environments.
Coaches can expect to explore and develop their coaching philosophy, develop a deeper understanding of cricket skills required to achieve high level performance, and use techniques to help them better understand themselves as coaches and the staff and players they work with.
The course equips coaches to plan long, medium and short-term for performance gain.
A range of tools are explored to help analyse performance, optimise learning environments, use feedback and self-reflection effectively and understand and appreciate the role individuality plays in elite sport. Coaches will also foster an understanding of the relationship between and the integration of various skill components required of high-level performance in cricket.
Coaches interested in attending the Performance Coach Course will be required to hold an existing Level 2 qualification or equivalent, have acquired some experience of working with the most talented young players, and demonstrate a willingness and open-mindedness to learn.
There is an application and selection process for the Performance Coaching Course. More details on this process will be available soon.
