              League Based Coaching Courses

The League Based coaching courses are the first stages of our annual Player Pathway process.

The most talented young players form our cricket clubs are nominated by their coaches to attend their respective age group league course where they will be put through their paces by Durham Cricket Board’s team of professional coaches.

The League courses are based on the league your club seniors play their cricket and are as follows –

Durham Cricket League

North East Premier League

Northumberland & Tyneside Senior League

North Yorkshire Area Cricket Council (linked to NYSDPL) 

Courses are run at the following age groups - under 11, under 12, under 13, under 14 and under 15. 

The course itself will be a mixture of skills such as, batting, bowling, fielding, fitness and game awareness.

Participants would be expecting to attend with their full cricketing gear such as bats, pads, gloves etc. Cricket Whites do not need to be worn, a tracksuit and cricket top is fine. We do ask that no footballing attire is worn during the sessions.

At the end of the course those who have demonstrated the potential to progress to the County Age Group Squads, will be invited to attend an assessment session at the Emirates Durham ICG, with the goal of trying to secure a place in the County Squad.

Once we have received all the nominations from the cricket club coaches, we will contact all the players to invite them to enrol onto the league course. ONLY THOSE WHO WE HAVE INVITED TO APPLY ARE ABLE TO BOOK ONTO ONE OF THE LEAGUE BASED COUSES.

All bookings for the courses are now done via our online booking system to make it easier for parents and reduce the administration burden for our office. If you have any queries with regard the booking process, please contact Steve Bell on (0191) 3872868 or e-mail Steve @

If you have received an e-mail or letter from us inviting your son/daughter to attend one of the league based courses, or you would like to see what other types of courses we have on offer, please click here.
