The club is all about encouraging participation, and to deliver that we always need coaches! It's a fun, rewarding role and can take as much or as little of your time as suits you.

You can learn more about how to coach your son or daughter in cricket by taking a Volunteer's coaching course or by becoming an ECB Coach.

The club will provide the funds for you to do this and arrange the courses, at the discretion of the chairman.

Volunteer’s Coaching Course

Not everyone needs or wants an ECB Coaching Qualification but are keen to help young children develop skills and enjoy the game of cricket.

Petersfield CC have ECB qualified coaches working with children but also need help because of the numbers we work with. It is with this in mind that a course for ‘Volunteers’ has been developed.

It is based on activity, fun and information that may also encourage candidates to jump on the next rung of the coaching ladder! Who knows?

What could be most important is that they will help provide a regular flow of talented players essential to the future of the club.

ECB Coach

  • Providing a safe and fun environment in which people, particularly children and young people, can enjoy their first experience of cricket, gain some success and be motivated to want to go on playing.
