ECB Coaching Pathway ECB Coaching Pathway

Cost: £330.

Minimum age for this course 18.

The Level 2 course will be suitable for you if you have played cricket and have knowledge of some of the rules and techniques involved in playing the game and are at least 18 years of age.

The ECB Coach Course is designed to help you “prepare for, deliver and review cricket coaching sessions”.

This role may include:

  • Planning coaching sessions
  • Leading coaching sessions on developing player’s technique
  • Running games to promote learning
  • Developing ways of improving player’s fitness and concentration
  • Managing net practice

Course Requirements:

  • 8 x 3 hour modules. These are usually delivered on 4 days over a 4-week period.
  • 2 x 3 hour modules:- First Aid and Protecting and Safeguarding Children
  • Practical Coaching Assessment
  • Multiple Choice Questionnaire
  • Supported coaching practice - this requires the coach to be able to work in a coaching environment and deliver a series of coaching sessions. This may be in a club or school environment that may be provided by county boards in cases where coaches have no existing options. Coaches should be able to be supervised by a more qualified coach whilst doing their supported practice. This will give you an opportunity to develop your coaching skills ‘out in the field’.

We will provide you with a variety of resources to support your learning and enable you to fulfil the role of the ECB Coach. These will include coaching cards, a DVD and a workbook. Coaches will also be given a logbook to help them with their coaching practice out in the field.

Once you have read the descriptions of each role carefully, consider which is most suitable for you. Coaches requiring additional information on the course content can visit http://www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/coaching/.

I am very interesting in persuing the level 2 course. I am a former Canadian player with holder of a level 1 coaching certificate and a first -aid license. I am currently the head coach of Preysal Cricket Club in Trinidad. and had coaching experiance with Argentina and St Lucia national Team.

If approved to do the course, can i complete it in two weeks starting from November 2012 to Appril 2013 ?

Looking forward for you response.

It will not be possible for you to do your Level 2 with the LCB because our courses run over 5 weeks. Then there is a 4 to 6 month break before the candidates undergo their Final Assessment.
You would also have to obtain the correct visa which would allow you to take part in a course of study in the UK.

I wanted to know if there's any pre-requisite for doing ECB Level 2 course directly. My friend has played for state teams 13, 16, 19 and 25; been a probables in the state Ranji Trophy team in India. He also does club coaching. Can he do level 2 directly or does he have to finish Level 1 first?

Would appreciate your inputs.
Tony Potter 29/01/2013 09:57:07

He would be able to go straight to Level 2. His problem would be obtaining the appropriate visa to enable him to undergo a course of study in this country.

The course that is currently open at Mysercough in January/February is saying '2013'. Is this right? If not and it is in fact for 2014 would the dates/days change?
