NCU Welcome to Coaching Course

Scott Irvine
Performance Analysis & Coach Development Consultant
Cricket Ireland

As previously mentioned, Cricket Ireland were planning to run an 'overflow' Welcome to Coaching course within the NCU region. We have been very lucky to gain funding from Simon Johnston through the Active Clubs Programme to run this additional course, but unfortunately the course is once again FULLY BOOKED at this stage. 

This Winter has appeared to be hugely successful in terms of Coach Education with around 100 NCU Coaches gaining their Welcome to Coaching qualification alone! This can be seen as no coincidence with greater communication between Cricket Ireland and the NCU clubs, aided massively with both Simon Johnston and Michael Hingston coming into role. As we move towards the season the more 'formal' coaching courses will tail off and Cricket Ireland will look to support your clubs and their coaches through various other methods throughout the summer. 

There appears to be a very large demand for Coach Education currently within the union and whilst we are unlikely to run any further courses before the start of the season, we would encourage you to begin to think of individuals within your club that you would like to have on future courses. 

We are beginning to compile a 'waiting list' of individuals that are looking to go on the next batch of courses, so please make us aware of people within your club that are interested in attending these courses.

You can either send their name and contact details to Scott Irvine at or complete the Coaching Course Interest document below on behalf of your club and return to Scott Irvine at your earliest convenience.
