England Cricket Board Level 2 coaching

Love-Cricket Courses are overseen by our Academy Director, George Brown. George has a successful track record in coaching junior cricket teams, recently guiding York’s Our Lady Queen of Martyrs RC Primary School to the Asda Kwikcricket finals at Leicestershire’s Grace Road and coaching players who have gone on to represent York Taverners and North Yorkshire.

With over 30 years combined experience, all our coaches are qualified to England Cricket Board (ECB) Level 2 and CRB checked. This year’s coaches have included a Men’s Scotland International, a Ladies Welsh International as well as a guest coaching appearance from Matthew Fisher, the England U-19′s opening bowler and current Yorkshire squad member.

Each Love-Cricket course follows a structured approach, whereby students develop a full range of core cricket skills, including batting, bowling, fielding and wicket keeping, as well as overall tactical appreciation.

At the end of each course, every student receives a detailed assessment and written report from the Academy Director, including skills attainment certification and development summary.

“Coaching is thoroughly professional, but always fun and enjoyable, so that not only do students learn sound technique, but develop a real passion for the game”.

Joe Ashdown, Yorkshire Cricket Board
