Just a short update on the planned Coaching Courses over the coming months:Coaching Kids (5-11 Years)
The Coaching Kids (5-11 years) Course is aimed at parents, teachers, and young adults supporting cricketers aged 5-11 years. The course is designed to provide new and emerging coaches with the knowledge and skills to deliver child-centred, safe, fun, and age-appropriate coaching sessions.
This course is usually the first step on the coaching ladder.
Minimum age: 14
Duration: 6 hours
The Coaching Cricket course is aimed at anyone who wants to coach club or school players aged over 11 years. The course is designed to provide new and emerging coaches with the knowledge and skills to deliver player centred, enjoyable, and safe coaching support with an appropriate focus on cricket skills and long-term player development.
This course is usually the second step on the coaching ladder. However, some coaches will choose to do this as their first course with us. However, please be aware that this course does include an assessment at the end of it where you will prepare a session plan, coach part of it to the other participants and get feedback from an assessor.
Minimum age: 18
Duration: 12 hours (usually delivered over 2 days)
This course was unable to take place in recent times due to Covid-19 restrictions. This is a Cricket Ireland course certified by the ECB. The ECB is still confirming some specifics around the application & delivery of this course which has been recently re-designed. We will update on this when we have more information from CI/ECB (the new 'Level 2' Course will be called “Core Coach”).
