Surrey Cricket is running an intensive course for Under 19s who would like to become a Level One Coach.
UKCC1 Intensive Coach Education Courses 11/12 U19 Specific
The Surrey Cricket Board are running a wide range of courses in order to expand and improve the existing coaching community within the county.
It is essential that you apply for the right course for you. Here is a quick guide to get you onto the course that you will find most useful and below is a brief outline of the UKCC1 course.
You must be at least 16 years old on day one of the course
This entry level course equips new coaches with the skills, knowledge and understanding to fulfill the role of a coaching assistant and to support more experienced and qualified coaches out in the field.
The course is split into 4 x 3 hour modules: Introduction to Cricket Coaching; Using Games to promote Learning; Developing Technical Skills and Group Coaching Practice followed by a final assessment. This is spread over three days.
The course is aimed at those who have little to and moderate cricket knowledge and experience (an ideal course for parent helpers). There are some technical skills that need to be demonstrated as part of the assessment but they are limited.
For 2011/12 you can apply for
ECB Coaches Association (ECBCA) membership at the same time as applying for a UKCC1 or UKCC2 course. We will pay the 1st Years Membership for you if you complete Step 2, if you wish to continue from year two please complete the direct debit section at the same time.
