What did previous candidates think about the course..........

'I undertook the coach support worker course which I found to be very useful. The online safeguarding course also helped.
I am managing an U10’s side working with qualified coaches. I have played men’s cricket since I was 14 and still play as much as I can now at 36. This is the first year I have done any coaching and the course helped me to start with the right frame of mind and to understand what we are trying to achieve for all players. I would have found coaching much harder without the course.'
(Attendee of the East Area Course 2015)

'I was just getting involved in coaching at my club (not as the named principal coach, but typically in situations where I was not going to receive directions from a coach - our coaching setup not being particularly well organised at the moment) when the course came around. I had hoped to attend the level 2 course last winter but the timing is really bad for me workwise, so the 1-day course was a useful way to get some initial pointers on what I should be doing.
Very useful for me was seeing some drills/games that I could use, what kit is useful to have for those, and it was useful to distinguish fixed/variable/game-based practice. Other key points of rotating so that all players keep involved and interested, and of being creative in modifying drills as required, also great.'
(Attendee of the East Area Course 2015)

'As a relative novice (I played a bit of cricket at school and have played socially for various ship's with the Royal Navy), I found the course brilliant.  I was dreading 4 hours of anything after a day of work, but actually it flew by and I would have quite happily stayed for another 4 hours. I learnt loads and took away loads of ideas for the U13 team I am managing this year.' (Attendee of the West Area Course 2015)
