Cricket coaching in schools has evolved significantly in recent years. Shorter game formats, and a focus on making the game more fast-moving, inclusive and exciting have demanded different ways of teaching the game. Traditional techniques and practice methods have required development to ensure that the game remains engaging for young people.
This requires a new approach to coaching, and an emphasis on attacking skills. Run-chasing with the bat has become as important as run-saving in the field. This course is suitable for teachers with some experience of the game, who wish to develop their understanding of modern techniques and coaching methods: it is not suitable for beginners. It will explain the basic skills of the modern limited overs game, together with ways of developing and practising them. It will also suggest imaginative ways of running net, square and fielding sessions for team practice.
