Fifteen coaches, young and old and hailing from clubs across the whole of Switzerland, obtained their Level 1 ECB Coaches Assistants qualification recently at a course organised by the Cricket Coaches Association of Switzerland.
Supported by ICC-Europe, the course introduces coaches to the fundamentals of coaching junior cricketers. Run over the weekend of Nov 12th-13th at the La Chataigneriae campus of the International School of Geneva, participants were put through their paces by two very experienced ECB Coaches – David Gelling and Richard Skyrme. Both coaches provided great feedback on the facilities for the course and the keenness of the participants.
And the participants all enjoyed the course very much.
Here’s some of their feedback:
Enough said really! We certainly encourage others interested in supporting the development of cricket in Switzerland to do similar courses in the future. The CCAS will organize more courses in 2012 – watch the SCA website for information about how to get involved.
