Successful LCBCA Conference 2014: 'Preparation is Key'
Over 100 coaches, from all over county, descended on Emirates Old Trafford on the 12th February to attend the bi-annual LCB Coaches Association (LCBCA) Coaches Conference.
This one day event, arranged by the LCBCA Committee was aimed at club coaches working with their young players in readiness for the 2014 season.
John Brierley, Chairman of LCBCA opened the event and was able to announce keynote presentations by John Abrahams, President of LCBCA and Peter Moores LCCC Head Coach. These were supported various workshops, which included:
- Practical batting workshop run by Ali Maiden of Durham CCC / ECB Women's Cricket.
- Classroom sessions on bowling led by our own Glenn Chapple and Gary Yates.
- 'Practice with a Purpose' led by Chris Gunn and Jon Partington.
- 'The Winning Edge' by Richard Dearden.
The latter two workshopes were delivered by LCBCA committee members.
A long day, aided by lunch in The Point, proved to be both challenging and stimulating, for all concerned.
Having thanked the speakers in his closing remarks John also took time out to thank Tony Potter for his help in organising conference, but most importantly the coaches themselves who had taken the time to attend to not only continue their own Development, but ensure that their players would get the up to date knowledge that would enable them to develop as young cricketers.
We're already looking forward to the Conference in 2016.
