A syllabus for Proficiency and Kwik Cricket Skills Awards would be supplied to the club coach and would therefore provide a common approach to junior coaching within the Club-School Link which is important, particularly to the newly qualified coach where this could act as an “after care” service.
Clubs should be aware of the current child protection issues as required by ECB and YCB. Every coach should have an ID Badge issued by YCB which is available on request. Details from your YCDO or from Howard Clayton
