In addition to developing the cricket players of the future, we want to help develop tomorrow's cricket coaches. Coaching courses are run during the winter in preparation for the new season, and involve several full days of training before an assessment day. You are also required to do some assessed supported coaching before you can become qualified, which Bexley District Cricket will support you with.
Including in the training is a DBS check and 2 3-hour sessions on safeguarding and first aid. These must be renewed every three years and you may not coach without these up-to-date documents. We also recommend that all coaches become members of the ECB Coaches Association, which gives you access to the latest coaching resources and provides you with insurance for just £30 a year.
