New Lancashire Coaching Scheme Launched
The Lancashire Cricket Board are pleased to launch the new Lancashire Coaching Scheme (LCS). After much preparation the LCS is hitting the ground running in January 2012.
As the Governing Body for cricket in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside responsible for promoting the game of cricket at all levels, the LCS is going to give young cricketers the opportunity to learn, improve and enhance their skills and knowledge of the game. It aims to attract both Primary (years 4, 5 and 6) and Secondary (years 7, 8 and 9) ages providing them with 8 weeks of coaching at foundation or advanced levels taking place at various clubs/venues across the County.
The LCS is designed to bring coaching to you! At foundation level it will provide cricketers with tools to develop their basic technique whilst the advanced level will provide the opportunity for young cricketers to receive development plans and strategies using video analysis to improve their game.
The LCS is running a pilot year in 2012 with Foundation courses available to both Primary and Secondary ages and eventually adult courses in the future.
Andrew Hayhurst (LCB Director) said: "This programme has been introduced as we have received a huge amount of interest in recent times regarding coaching courses. This stems from the massive increase in cricket participation amongst youngsters over the past few years due to the Chance to Shine programme and our own efforts. We are also challenged by ECB to be more self sufficient and not rely on national programmes as a source of funding. We hope to be able to expand this programme beyond its pilot year and provide opportunities for all youngsters, in every region of Lancashire, at all levels, to access the game."
