ECB Foundation 1 Course

Coaching is an enormously rewarding, challenging and crucial role in cricket.

ECB Foundation I Coach is a new coach development programme and qualification that has been created to help more people take their first steps into coaching cricket.

A blend of e-learning and face-to-face modules led by ECB Coach Developers will explore what coaching looks like, the impact you can have as an ECB Foundation I Coach, the skills you can help players to develop and how you can learn from your experiences.

By committing yourself to this programme and becoming a qualified coach you will become an important part of the ECB’s coaching family that works together to help players improve, have fun, be safe and learn at every stage of their development.

Programme outcomes

This programme has been designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach cricket sessions that are active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe.

An ECB Foundation I Coach will be qualified to lead coaching sessions independently and without supervision.

It is now the entry level qualification required to coach cricket.
