OCTOBER 2020: 

We are endeavouring to help complete all courses (Foundation One and Level 2) that have been affected by the Covid situation. All candidates will be given the opportunity to complete courses as and when we are able to.



Coaching is an enormously rewarding, challenging and crucial role in cricket. 

ECB Foundation I Coach is a new coach development programme and qualification that has been created to help more people take their first steps into coaching cricket.

By committing yourself to this programme and becoming a qualified coach you will become an important part of the ECB’s coaching family that works together to help players improve, have fun, be safe and learn at every stage of their development.


Programme outcomes

This programme has been designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach cricket sessions that are active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe.

An ECB Foundation I Coach will be qualified to lead coaching sessions independently and without supervision.

It is now the entry level qualification required to coach cricket.
