Health & Safety and SPC courses for Overseas Players
Each year clubs wishing to sign overseas players, find that they need to fulfill certain criteria for the ECB and the UK Borders Agency to allow them to enter the country as an overseas player.
The overseas player must hold a coaching certificate, or be booked on to a coaching course in this country. The LCB however is not running a coaching course for overseas players. The players who hold coaching certificates must if they are from Australia, South Africa or New Zealand attend a Health and Safety course and a Safeguarding and Protecting Children Course. Overseas players who have obtained a coaching certificate from the UK which is more than 3 years old must also attend these courses.
To assist clubs to complete paperwork and satisfy ECB Governing Body Endorsment, the LCB is running a Health & Safety and a Safeguarding & Protecting Children course. These two courses will be run this year at Leyland Cricket Club on Monday 12th May starting at 10:00. The cost of both courses is £75 total, cheques made payable to Lancashire Cricket Board.
Places can be booked by contacting Brian Woodhead by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further details for overseas players and requirements can be obtained from ECB Governing Body Endorsment.
