CNSW is conducting a Level 1 course on the 16th February at the SCG Indoor Centre from 9am to 5pm. Dates for entry close on 10th February.
These things go like hot cakes so make sure you register your interest early.
One of the aims is to provide those players that will be travelling to the UK to play an opportunity to attain a Level 1 Coaching certificate that will allow them to coach in the UK and earn some money while there. Most Clubs and agents require players who are playing in the UK to gain this qualification.
– Volunteers involved in coaching junior club, school and community cricket teams.
– Talented youth cricketers who are keen to be involved in coaching junior teams.
