B3 Cricket Coaching Hub and Free videos
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:54:18 AM »

Hi All,

We have recently paired up with some of the best coaches in the country to be part of the B3 Coaching Hub, (https://b3cricket.com/coaching-hub/meet-the-team/ with more to be announced in the coming weeks). The B3 Coaching Hub is designed to help both players and coaches improve their cricket knowledge, skills, and performances. For a further look at the Hub please take a look at this..

We have also released some videos on our YouTube channel for a few things to see you through lockdown #2

I am in the process of completing an ECB Level 2 coaching qualification and am, quite frankly, very depressed about it. I'm sure these guys know their onions though.

What's making you depressed about the Level 2?? It's something I'm looking at doing soon.

For starters, it's depressing how little people have to know about cricket to be a cricket coach nowadays.  The ECB have clearly lowered the bar to address concerns about participation levels and justify prostituting themselves to Sky.  There is much scope for conflicting, and downright bad, information being passed onto kids and developing players.

Level 2 has virtually no technical content at all - its mainly pedagogical.

They basically assume you're gonna coach 12 year olds and that if you've played a bit of league cricket you probably already know enough about the sport to be able to do this.

Obviously this is nonsense - the coaches who coach kids are the ones who really need to know technique inside out, and 95% of league cricketers know basically nothing about technique.

The level 2 course is specifically designed so that you don't have to have played cricket to be able to complete the course.  Having done it myself, there were a number of parents on the course with no cricket background who were there because they had a son or daughter who played and they were on the coach to support them and their club.  There is a very strong focus in the early years in simply making cricket an enjoyable experience which will make children want to play cricket  in the first place and then to keep coming back.

The level 3 qualification deals with much more of the technical side to coaching and is a much more substantial investment of time for those who want to develop as coaches.

I would highly recommend doing the level 2 course if you get the opportunity.  It is fun and a good opportunity to interact with people from other clubs in your local area as well as being able to give something back to the game

have to admit to finding lvl 2 utterly pointless and a total waste of time. Lvl 3 is marginally better but still not very good. It's all sadly just for tick boxing, as long as you look at it like that it's fine. If you actually want to be a good coach you might as well just not bother as you won't really learn anything new unless you know little to nothing to start with.

just my opinion and I'm sure ECB lovers will disagree as they do love a good qualification

Isn't that what level 1 is supposed to be????

I did my level 1 a few years ago and it was pretty much 0 cricket content, more about participation, fun and making sure your priorities were child safety (Obviously this is a no-brainer).

Level 1 is as you say about child safety and welfare.  It is aimed at those supporting a coach running a session whereas level 2 is for those running sessions.

So essentially Level 1 is a course on volunteering to help out and Level 2 is a course on facilitating a session?

Playing devils advocate here, but does anyone think training technique (certainly depending on age and experience the training is to be delivered to of course) is becoming less relevant  in the modern game? More and more top level players are unorthodox in technique, and I am certainly of the belief weve trained quirks and difference out of a lot of talented cricketers in this country, as well as dismissing those with a technique that doesnt fit with traditionalist views far too early in their careers.

Yes, that is a fair summary.

Basically, yes. It will probably a session about: running in straight (and the ball will go straight); showing the full face of the bat;  or being in a 'ready person' when in the field.

Add a liberal sprinkling of terms you've heard on Sky (whether you understand them or not), and you're pretty much there.

So what if bowlers don't want to run in straight? You wouldn't believe the regimented way this is being taught. Only Archer of England's bowlers would get through the tunnel of cones that I routinely being set up by 'coaches'.

I think there is still an emphasis on the fundamentals needed to succeed, but a recognition that we got it wrong with emphasising orthodoxy.  Certainly a positive development in my view.

The amateur game is changing though.  Looking back at a few scorebooks from when I first played league cricket in the mid 90s and comparing scoring rates to today, it is a different game.
