Templepatrick host Cricket Ireland Coach Education Course
April 4th saw Templepatrick Cricket Club host an Introduction to Cricket Coaching Course. 18 enthusiastic, budding new cricket coaches attended and were put through their paces by English Cricket Board and Cricket Ireland Tutors Andy McCrea Michael Hingston and Colin Manson.
The 18 coaches were from a range of experiences, backgrounds and organisations and included, current players, young players, parents and teachers who all fancy getting involved in promoting youth cricket at their clubs and schools.
The course offered them the opportunity to collect advice on drills and skills they could pass on to their young players and will allow them to introduce cricket skills in a quality way and provide a range of games that can also be used with players to further develop their cricket experience.
Everyone fully immersed themselves in the activities and as the photos show there was plenty of activity for all to get their teeth into.
This is yet a further example of the Ballyclare based cricket club feeling the importance of encompassing the whole community and offering opportunities for as many people as possible to get involved with cricket.
