Coaches are vital to the development of cricket on the Isle of Man. The IOMCA supports the development of coaches at all levels of the game, to ensure they're able to provide players with the best possible experience of playing cricket and the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding of the game to help them fulfil their potential.
IOM Sport Coach Development Opportunities
IOM Sport have organised a series of webinar presentations for people to access to develop their coaching practices ranging from learning and feedback processes to Mental health awareness. These workshops are free to anyone who would like to view them and no coaching qualifications are necessary. See the attached flyer for full details.
As a coach or assistant it is good practice to attend certain pre-requisite courses and have certain additional checks in place. All coaches should have a DBS (disclosure and barring service check) and it is worth attending SPC (safeguarding and protecting children) and an emergency aid qualification. These services are all offered by IOM sport. A list of the upcoming courses can be found on the download below.
