ECB Cricket For Primary School TeachersClose Window


This course is designed to build confidence in teaching cricket in physical education and school sport. It has been developed by the ECB in partnership with Chance to Shine to train teachers to inspire children and young people and ignite lifelong passion for cricket. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge, understanding and application of appropriate games and practices within the national curriculum. The workshop will also explore opportunities to promote intra-school competition within physical education and school sport.

As part of this course, teachers will gain access to i-coach, the official ECB online planning resource which contains extensive video examples of:-

* Warm up / cool down drills

* How to coach batting, bowling and fielding techniques according to varying levels of ability

* How to organise and run practice drills

* A variety of cricket-based games  

* Tactical play in cricket

In addition, i-coach has a session planner making it ideal for planning lessons and will also provide good documentary evidence for OFSTED!
