Cricket Ireland is running another session of its brilliant Teacher Training programme: ‘Teaching Cricket and Hockey’ on November 17th at 7:30pm.

In partnership with Hockey Ireland, the programme aims to sustainably support both sports at primary and secondary schools by providing training and resources to teachers keen to deliver cricket and hockey at their schools.

Introducing teachers to the fundamentals of each sport, along with planning and delivering school-yard, PE or after school sessions will be supported by game-based resources including activities and small-sided games.

Delivered as a 90-minute webinar,  Teaching Cricket and Hockey is an accessible and interactive learning opportunity. The engaging webinars will be delivered by experienced cricket and hockey coaches.

Stephen Maxwell, Coach Education Manager at Cricket Ireland:

“Cricket Ireland has been collaborating with Hockey Ireland to develop this training initiative with a view to supporting teachers at both primary and secondary levels.

“As well as this course, Cricket Ireland is partnered with Chance to Shine to develop and deliver free classroom resources for teachers to deliver curriculum-aligned lessons using cricket as a vehicle. We can now offer teachers who have taken an interest in cricket the tools to take cricket out of the classroom and into the school yard.

“As ‘bat and ball’ sports, cricket and hockey complement each other incredibly well and we view this as a significant opportunity to grow the access to both sports in schools across the island. Arming teachers with the skills and knowledge to deliver both Cricket and Hockey at their schools aims to sustainably increase active participation in both sports by giving more people, more opportunities to be more involved, more often.”
