Course Overview

Coaching children is a challenging and enormously rewarding role within the coaching pathway. Players need expertise, support and passion at every level of their development; this course is designed with your players' needs at its core.

In turn, the experiences, tasks, practices and sharing of ideas which you experience during the course are design to help equip you with the tools you need to meet your players' needs.

Just as players learn quickly, so do coaches. The challenge for all coaches is to learn as they develop, just as players do.

Who should attend

Coaches who are going to coach children from 6 to 13 years of age. They may be new coaches, existing Coaching Assistant (UKCC Level 1)/ECB Level 1 or young people and adults’ cricket coaches who wish to access the ‘children’ environment.
