Making Cricket Exciting and Fun with Richard Skyrme

Crocket Coaching and Umpiring with Richard Skyrme
Dates & Venues

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we do not have any courses scheduled. We will be releasing dates as soon as regulations change.

Cricket teaching and coaching has changed considerably in recent years. The game has become faster moving, and the techniques involved have evolved. This is a course for teachers and coaches of Cricket, who have little or no recent experience of playing or coaching the game, which will enable them to present an exciting game to children. It is particularly suitable for those teaching both younger and lower ability pupils – both boys and girls. The course provides all necessary technical information, but also illustrates how this can be delivered in an engaging way through exciting, fast-paced sessions. Practices to make the game accessible to all are combined with more advanced ways of stretching the more able.

It will also enable teachers to officiate confidently in school matches and practices.
