GCB and CWI to rollout coaching education certification courses in March
The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) in collaboration with Cricket West Indies (CWI) will be conducting a series of coaching certification courses across the three counties of Guyana, the GCB announced on Saturday.
The courses are scheduled to commence from March 2022 and all three county boards are currently in the process of earmarking and registering their potential candidates to participate in the applicable courses, the Board outlined.
“The Essequibo Cricket Board, Demerara Cricket Board and Berbice Cricket Board have each given an undertaking to register a minimum of sixteen potential participants,” the GCB said in a press release.
“On Thursday January 20, 2022 representatives of the three counties met with CWI Coach Development Manager Chris Brabazan to discuss the rollout of the coaching education courses with respect to the county’s landscape, players development plans and CWI coaching education policies.”
The GCB added: “For beginners, the first step in the coaching education certification programme will be their participation in the now online CWI Foundation Coaching Course. Individuals holding previous and current CWI Foundation Coaching Certificates and/or license who are desirous of participating in the CWI Level One Coaching Certification Course, must ensure that they have the prerequisites before registering for this course. These prerequisites are CWI Foundation Coaching Certificate or its equivalent, Child Protection Certificate, First Aid Certificate and Police Clearance.”
GCB’s President Bissoondyal Singh indicated that teachers and other individuals desirous of participating in the CWI Foundation and Level One Coaching Courses are encouraged to make contact with their respective county boards to explore the possibilities of registration for the series of planned courses.
Further, he suggested that CWI Level One Certified Coaches are also encouraged to register their interest with their respective county boards in participating in the CWI Level Two Coaching Course.
