We donâ??t have an equivalent of the old Level 1 course that the ECB used to run â?? this used to be 18 hours of work plus an assessment at the end of it. The ECB withdrew this course. This means that the Introduction Course is now split into the Welcome to Cricket course (3hr) and the Welcome to Coaching course (6hr). It then jumps to the Level 2 equivalent: the Certificate Courses. These are designed to be cater for coaches specific to different age groups. The Certificate in Coaching Young People and Adults is geared towards those coaching ages 13+. Whereas the Certificate in Coaching Children is directed towards those coaching children 13 and under.
