Coach Education and Umpire Courses now live across Wales BOOK NOW


The new FOUNDATION 1 COURSE is the entry course for volunteers becoming a qualified coach. It is shorter than previous versions (L2) and so we hope much more accessible with online learning as well as the face to face element only two days.

Coaching is an enormously rewarding, challenging and crucial role in cricket.  By committing yourself to this programme and becoming a qualified coach you will become an important part of cricket's  family that works together to help players improve, have fun, be safe and learn at every stage of their development.

An ECB Foundation I Coach will be qualified to lead coaching sessions independently and without supervision. 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 may 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.

With our ambitions for the growth of women's & girls' cricket in Wales please encourage female candidates to consider this course
