We are pleased to report that we have two new ECB qualified cricket coaches for the 2021 season.
Over two weekends in May, Senior Men’s team regular, Mark Banfield and Vice Chair and Ladies Captain, Suzi Rich, joined sixteen other wannabe coaches to complete four face-to-face modules with Kent Cricket Coach Developers, Phil Pass, Neil Taylor and Peter Carter, at Town Malling Cricket Club. The modules included three observed coaching opportunities covering the foundations of fielding, bowling and batting in which various competencies were assessed. Delegates were also required to complete seven e-learning modules, and two multiple choice assessments, to include safeguarding. Suzi and Mark are now proudly accredited as ECB Foundation Level 1 Cricket Coaches.
Suzi is hoping to use the qualification to further develop Women and Girls Cricket at Capel and Mark plans to support the existing coaching team of Bim Gajjar, Jon Stronell and Ryan Walmsley.
