Coaching children is a challenging and enormously rewarding role within the coaching pathway. Players need expertise, support and passion at every level of their development; this course is designed with your players' needs at its core. In turn, the experiences, tasks, practices and sharing of ideas which you experience during the course are design to help equip you with the tools you need to meet your players' needs. Just as players learn quickly, so do coaches. The challenge for all coaches is to learn as they develop, just as players do.
Coaches who are to Coach Children from 6 to 13 years of age. They may be new coaches, existing UKCC1/ECB L1 or Young Person and Adult coaches who wish to access ‘child specific’ content.
Coaches will be required to attend 8 x 3 hour modules, complete online learning tasks in between modules and six sessions of supported practice usually in your own club coaching environment.
We highly recommend you take up membership of the ECB Coaches’ Association and the SCB will cover your first year’s membership.
