Coaching is a challenging and enormously rewarding role within our game. Players need expertise, support and passion at every level of their development.
No matter whether you are putting something back into the game you love, progressing your career, helping out at your local club, or simply providing more support to your child, there is a reason for everyone to get involved in cricket coaching.

Bursaries funded by the generous support provided by Liverpool Victoria General Insurance Group Limited to the England and Wales Cricket Trust are intended to increase the diversity of learners taking their first step into coaching, gaining a qualification or taking the next step on their coach development journey.
Groups that have been identified to increase the diversity of learners accessing coach development programmes are:
· Potential coaches/coaches that are female
· Potential coaches/coaches from ethnically diverse communities
· Potential coaches/coaches with a disability
· Potential coaches/coaches experiencing financial hardship.
A bursary can be awarded to learners that register on ECB Support Coach, ECB Foundation Coach or ECB Core Coach programmes between 1st February 2023 and 31st January 2024.
