During the winter of 2013, Berkshire Cricket offered a wide ranging Coach Education programme, in conjunction with the Berkshire Cricket Coaches Association. This saw 39 candidates attend and complete the Level One 'Coach Assistant' as well as 36 candidates undertake the Level Two Coach Award course. There were also 23 coaches who attended the 'Coach Development Workshops'. Several Cricket Young Leaders courses were also held in conjunction with School Sport Partnerships, with many of the attendees now going on to help out with the running of local Kwik Cricket Festivals.
Details of the 2014 Coach Education Programme will be released in the next few moths and will be found here.
