Supporting the Coaches of the Youth teams

The Club is always on the lookout for Parents willing to help with the large number of Youth Teams we have, particularly in supporting the Lead Coach.

There will be two opportunities at Frenchay for potential Volunteers to get some experience to help develop their Coaching knowledge during April. These are: –

•             The GCB are putting on a ‘Coach Support Workers’ (CSW) Course (1st level of ECB based training) on Sunday 24th April. This is a Six Hour Course run by a GCB Tutor (9.30 to start at 10.00 – 4.00) for anyone aged 16+, and provides ‘Game based Practices’, ‘Warm-up’ and ‘Cool down’ Drills etc, aimed at supporting the Lead Coach working with a Group; the cost of this is £30.00 per person, and up to 16 people per Course. The Club has agreed to reimburse any Parent who attends this Course and commits to helping a Group as much as possible this coming season. Places on the Frenchay CSW course can be booked online by clicking on the following link:-  The deadline for securing a place is Sunday 13th March, following which any places left will be offered to other Cricket Clubs;

•             DFCA Coaching (Damian Forder) are running a ‘Parent Helper’ Course at Frenchay on Tuesday evening 19th April (6.30 – 8.00) aimed at giving ‘volunteers’ a little bit of help in some ‘Games’ that can be used in training; the Course is ‘Free’.

For the Coach Support Worker Course, a booking must be made using the above on-line link, and in both cases, can you please let Sally know  if you would like to take part in one (or both?).
