Level 1 Coaching Course in Lima

ICC Coaching Course, Oct 2007An ICC Level 1 Coaching Course was held in Lima from October 22nd to 27th, 2007 and was attended by Cricket Peru’s Miles Buesst who writes:

‘The first 2 days were dedicated to an Introduction to Cricket Instructors Course – basically, how to teach other people how to introduce cricket to kids. This is obviously of great importance to Cricket Peru as we have virtually no kids learning how to play cricket at the moment.

One of the key elements of current ICC policy is to promote the women’s game, so it would be to our benefit to bear this in mind when setting up any processes. It would also double our potential base.

The final 4 days were spent doing the West Indies Cricket Board Level 1 Coaching Course, which is designed to be used to coach kids, ostensibly. Having said that, most of us could benefit from the techniques imparted – for example, the leg and off spinning element was a real eye-opener; and I had no idea what the guidelines for gripping the bat were.’

The coaching course was followed by a Level 1 Umpiring Course from October 29th to November 2nd.  The charms of Lima, including a wonderful and historic club for such events in Lima Cricket & Football Club, good hotels at low prices, rain-free weather and a central position in South America make this city an ideal venue for such events.ICC Coaching Course, Oct 2007 - Grant DugmoreICC Coaching Course, Oct 2007 (1)
