Cricket West Indies (CWI) in collaboration with the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association (SVCA), and the Anguilla Cricket Association (ACA) recently conducted CWI Competition Coaching (Level1) Courses.

Fifteen coaches successfully completed the St. Vincent course, which was delivered by CWI Coach Developer Junie Mitcham and local Coach Developers Ian Allen; the former West Indies seam bowler; and Samantha Lynch; former St Vincent player and coach.

Among the 15 participants were eight female coaches including former West Indies batter Cordel Jack, who played 20 One-Day Internationals and 13 T20 Internationals between 2005 and 2010. The Anguilla edition attracted six participants, all of whom are current players looking to have an immediate impact in their communities to help grow the sport.

“It is great that we have been able to travel more freely across 2022 and visit each territory in some cases twice. We have been able to connect with coaches from every stage of the West Indies Cricket Pathway whilst further upskilling our network of local Coach Developers who are now able to deliver future Level 1 courses as required,” said CWI Coach Development Manager, Chris Brabazon.

The CWI Competition Coaching Courses provide coaches with an opportunity to learn and develop contemporary coaching philosophies and techniques that will allow them to thrive in the organised competition realm (Under-13s to seniors) of the West Indies Cricket Pathway.

The courses covered a range of topics including the Role of a Competition Coach (Level 1), Coaching Styles (Implicit and Explicit), Applied Skill Acquisition across the various aspects of cricket, as well as how to plan and deliver effective contemporary training sessions.

The next face to face CWI Courses and Coach Development Workshops will be held in Jamaica from Monday, 5 December to Friday, 9 December where they will conduct courses Trelawney and Kingston.

Over the past three years, well over 700 new coaching certificates have been delivered across the Caribbean from the foundation level to Level 3 as part of CWI’s goal of making coach development more accessible and aligned to the West Indies Cricket Pathway.
