Courses for both new and experienced coaches

Giving players a fantastic first experience of cricket is critical to their ongoing involvement in the sport. This responsibility usually lies with a cricket coach at a local club. We want to grow and diversify the coaching workforce across the county to enable more people to have a great time playing the sport. We run many different formal and informal training events – for existing coaches, those looking to train as a coach and those looking to support existing coaches.
