Sky Sports and the ECB believe in achieving excellence at all levels of cricket.
Whether you are hoping to coach school cricket or are aiming to be the next England Team Director you need a flexible plan that helps you to achieve your ambition.
That's where a 'Coaching Pathway' - a programme that allows you to adapt your training to your lifestyle - comes in. There are a number of modules and qualifications available, each of which are tailored to your needs. They include:
ECB Young Leaders: this is aimed at 14-18 year old who wish to get involved in leading cricket activities at school or want to help out at a club and take the first steps towards being a coach.
ECB Coaching Assistant (UKCC1): this course is aimed at beginner coaches such as parents and volunteers with limited knowledge of the game. Once qualified it allows them to play a vital role in clubs assisting more qualified coaches to provide young players with a fun and enjoyable first experience of the game.
ECB Coach (UKCC2): this course trains people to take the lead in planning, organising and delivering cricket coaching sessions, making up the life blood of community coaching across thousands of clubs in the UK.
Coach Development Workshops: they provide further technical detail and coaching information in batting, bowling, fielding and coaching teams.
ECB Head Coach (UKCC3): this equips coaches with the skills to take the lead in looking after the development of players' technical, tactical, mental physical and lifestyle requirements, often at a more senior level in clubs, districts or at county level.
In addition, our Working in Schools Programme provides training for coaches to work in the school environment and Initial Teacher Training allows coaches to take part while studying for their degrees.
