About the Course:

This certified 'Coaching Kids 5-11 years' course run by Cricket Leinster is aimed at coaches who are or will be coaching cricket to kids aged 5-11 years. The course is designed to provide new and emerging coaches with the knowledge and skills to deliver child-centred, safe, fun, and age-appropriate coaching sessions.

 

There have been some improvements to this course. You will now be required to complete modules online, in your own time, prior to the day of the course. This will take approximately 60mins. This means we have been able to reduce the in-person course time. Please note that your name and email address will be shared with Cricket Ireland for accreditation purposes. Please note that participants must now be aged 16 or over on the day of the course.

 

All participants will receive a comprehensive workbook with guidance on technique as well as drills and games. This is only available to those that attend the course on the day.
