Haddenham Cricket Club Needs Coaches for its Junior Section
Last Autumn Haddenham Cricket Club had an awards ceremony at which a major plea for help and assistance with coaching on a Wednesday evening was made. At that time two volunteers were forthcoming and all looked good for the next season. Alas, for understandable reasons, both those volunteers have had to stand down. Fortunately a new coach in the shape of Kai Feltham has made himself available.
At present we have four fully qualified Level 1 coaches :
- Gareth Thomas
- Dave Towell
- Boyan Pulic
- Kai Feltham
And one Level 2 coach (Richard Moore)
The Club lost Mark Westcott this year, due to a work relocation and that means it simply won't be able to provide the depth or time for individuals that it could do if more coaches were available.
The Club is therefore looking for a volunteer to commit to undertaking a Level 1 ECB coaching course. Haddenham Cricket Club has the funds and will pay for all the training (about £350 per coach in total).
The course is essentially designed for parents and volunteers starting on the coaching pathway. Its location will probably be Stoke Mandeville School
The course timing is as follows:
6 April 9:30-15:30
13 April 9:30-15:30
20 April Assessment — Time to be advised
If you are interested or would like to discuss it in detail please contact Richard Moore (see contact details below).
Whatever happens on the formal training front Haddenham Cricket Club will still need the magnificent efforts of those Mums and Dads who lend a hand from time to time, and for which the Club members are very grateful. Every little helps.
