Q. What is Coach Education?

Q. What is the Durham Cricket Board Coaches Association?
A. The DCBCA on behalf of the ECB offer a range of world-leading learning experiences and qualifications to suit people coaching at all levels of the game, from those volunteering at their local club to professional coaches working in an elite, international environment.
If you have already qualified as a coach and have all of your pre requisites in place then you are eligible to be a member of the ECB Coaches Association (ECB CA). The ECB CA is another place you can turn to for advice and support. It provides you with access to the latest thinking and ideas as well as contact with like-minded coaches working to help each other with the simplest of questions right through comprehensive insurance and legal support if you require it. Click here for more information about joining the ECB CA.
To be able to access all of the benefits of the ECB CA and to be fully covered when you are coaching all coaches must hold a valid Disclosure & Barring Seervice (DBS) check. If you do not have a valid DBS and would like to request a new form or need to update then click here for more information
You will also need a valid Emergency First Aid certificate which you will receive if you have attended a course ran by any accredited organisation. If you do not currently hold a valid certificate visit www.necoursefinder.org for a full list of locally run courses
As well as a valid DBS you will also need to have completed what used to be known as a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop ran by an accredited governing body. Under the new Community Coach Education structure the ECB have developed their own accredited course known as the Safeguarding Young Cricketers (SYC) course which is an online, e-learning module. If you have not attended or completed one of these courses within the last 3 years you will need to update. To register for the SYC course please email ourCoach Education Manager with your name, current address and telephone number, requesting you be registered for a course
