The course is designed to bring in new people into the game, and has been made accessible through Regional Funding Support from ICC Europe.

To provide participants with:
A basic understanding of the game of cricket and a basic education in three important components of the game: Coaching, Umpiring, and Scoring.

The skills and resources to conduct/assist a cricket session with children. It would be envisaged that this session would predominately include game based activities, but also some coaching components.

Target Market:  Predominantly teachers, tertiary education students, parents and youth workers with little or no understanding of cricket. Also current players and cricket interested people, with little or no coaching, umpiring or scoring experience.

Assessment/Attendee Requirements: There is no official assessment to be completed during this course. Participants however are required to attend all components of the course in order to receive a certificate of participation.

Accreditation: This course does not have an official accreditation; however attendees will receive a certificate of participation at the completion of the course.

Who Conducts the Course? Local instructors who have been trained during an ICC Cricket Education Instructors course, conducted by their ICC Development regional office.

We are hugely grateful for ICC Europe’s support to the courses, and also to the support of Merrion Cricket Club, Templepatrick Cricket Club, Fingal County Council and Coleraine & Ballymoney Borough Councils for facilitating these hugely important courses as Cricket continues to grow exponentially at many levels throughout the country.
