Middlesex Coach Pathway

The Middlesex Coach Pathway provides Middlesex ‘volunteer’ coaches working in the coaching environments at clubs and at the performance-level with a pathway to enable them to progress from being a member of the cricket workforce ‘helping’ in a club, school or other cricket organisation, all the way through to managing and coaching county age group squads.

The majority of Coach Education provision in Middlesex prepares coaches for delivering in a club environment. Coaches require additional qualifications to coach in Community and Performance environments, details of which can be downloaded here:

ECB Qualifications

The Middlesex Cricket Participation Team is responsible for the management and delivery of the programme of coach education courses to gain formal ECB coach qualifications and to prepare coaches to work in schools and in the community.

The following courses are included in the annual programme:

  • Coach Support Environment
  • Coaching Children Environment (Level 2 Course)
  • Coaching Young People and Adults Environment (Level 2 Course)
  • Coaching in Schools
  • ECB Continuous Professional Development Modules (Children Environment and Young People and Adults Environment)
  • ECB Diploma (Children Environment and Young People and Adults Environment)

Coaches wishing to attend a Level 2 Course, the CPD Modules or the Diploma Course should select the course appropriate to the age and stage of players they are currently, or are intending to work with.  Coaches of those players aged 6 - 13 years should attend courses in the Coaching Children Environment; coaches for those players aged 14 years and above should attend courses in the Coaching Young People and Adults Environment. The competencies for each course are linked to this.

Any queries for the 2016/17 programme should be sent to coach.education@middlesexccc.com

There are additional certification requirements coaches need to have completed before they can be deemed to have gained a certification or qualification in the above coach education courses (these are not required for Cricket Activator Course).  These include:

  • First Aid (not required for Coach Support Worker Course)
  • Safeguarding and Protecting Children or Safeguarding Young Cricketers
  • up-to-date ECB vetting check: Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

The Safeguarding Young Cricketers Course is available online and a link to access the accreditation will be sent to candidates who register on a Coach Support Worker or Level 2 Course.  This course can also act as a refresher for coaches who require to update this element of their qualification.

Middlesex Coach Development Events

Throughout the year, coach development events are held to supplement the programme of formal ECB coach education courses.  These are normally organised by the MCoA and delivered by Middlesex coaches from the Youth Cricket Department or Participation Team. The aims of these coach development events are to:

  • Raise the level of technical competence of Middlesex coaches
  • Improve delivery of coaching by Middlesex coaches, in order to achieve more effective player outcomes
  • Continue to build the ‘sense of community’ amongst Middlesex coaches by sharing knowledge, experience and friendship.

The coach development events run in Middlesex are based on the need and demand from coaches and reviewed throughout the year. 

Two examples of these courses held recently are ‘introduction to the new ECB approach to coach education’ run by the Participation Team for coaches who passed the old Level 2 Course to bring them up to date with the approach in the new Level 2 Course and ‘talent identification’ run by the Youth Cricket Department, both of which were organised through the MCoA.

Specific coach development events held in April 2015 and worthy of note are ‘Working with Young Elite Players’ for coaches working in the Middlesex Player Pathway at this link https://youtu.be/RDyQ6YVbCf4 and ‘Building the Female Cricket Workforce in Middlesex’ for female coaches at this link https://youtu.be/CMWM-MCLFeA
