For the first time, Cricket Ireland is in a position to offer a thorough Winter Programme of Coach Education courses. We are now in a position to offer Coach Education courses throughout the country, using our own tutors to deliver all of the available courses.
The aim of these courses is to encourage clubs to develop coaching teams, and develop their existing coaches - Cricket Ireland is currently offering three entry level courses:
ICC Introduction to Cricket
UKCC Level One (Coaching Assistant)
UKCC Level Two (Coach)
Below is the full list of courses for the NCU Winter Programme. If you would like more information, please contact Coach Education Officer – Stephen Moreton on firstname.lastname@example.org +353833779208. First step to register for a course is to fill out an application form, which will be sent by email on request by Stephen.
The Winter Program is as follows:
Friday 29th October – ICC Introduction to Cricket (Shankill Leisure Centre) – Course is now full.

In February, Cricket Ireland will be running a Tutor Training Course, with the assistance of ICC Europe and the ECB – which will provide us with 8 more tutors. This increase in the tutor workforce will allow greater flexibility in the running of courses and allow us to strategically plan future courses dependent on need and demand.
NB: Coaches now require a First Aid Certificate, Child Protection Certificate, CRB Check (and/or) Garda Vetting Clearance to obtain a Coaching Certificate (except Introduction to Cricket.)
