ECB FOUNDATION I COURSE
Coaching is an enormously rewarding, challenging and crucial role in cricket. ECB Foundation I Coach is a new coach development programme and qualification that has been created to help more people take their first steps into coaching cricket. By committing yourself to this programme and becoming a qualified coach you will become an important part of the ECB’s coaching family that works together to help players improve, have fun, be safe and learn at every stage of their development.
This programme has been designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach cricket sessions that are active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe. An ECB Foundation I Coach will be qualified to lead coaching sessions independently and without supervision. It is now the entry level qualification required to coach cricket.
Courses for Spring 2021 will be run with 12 candidates and 2 Tutors and will be fully compliant with Covid regulations. Candidates that sign up will be invited to a pre-course Zoom meeting to go through details on how the courses will be run. There will be a requirement to complete Modules 1-4 on your e-learning account prior to attending day one.
