Cricket Coaching & Management BSc (Hons)
Cricket Coaching and Management is a creative and innovative course for cricket players, coaches or indeed anyone with an enthusiasm for cricket.
It develops an insight into cricket coaching, development and management through theoretical and practical experience. The course focuses on the work of the modern cricket coach/ development officer/ manager.
The work-based learning element of the programme, in collaboration with Worcestershire County Cricket Club, provides excellent opportunities for work experience and additional qualifications. These opportunities allow students to develop their own coaching practice and expand their knowledge of specific principles of training and performance analysis.
This degree has been developed to meet the needs of this important sector. It should be appreciated that cricket coaching and development needs to be planned for at a local, regional and national level, therefore the appropriate management skills must also be developed, particularly in the area of human resources and securing funds for projects. This area has grown in importance in relation to local/regional employment opportunities and international development work and aid projects. This can range from the governing bodies of sport ensuring that their sports are strengthened in new emerging markets, to charities using sport related projects to improve the quality of people’s lives. This course also equips the student with the vital skills to compete in this exciting area such as developing expertise in entrepreneurship, problem-solving and management.
Areas of study will include: Sport Science (Physiology, Psychology, Biomechanics); Principles of Coaching (Philosophy and styles); Skill Acquisition; Performance Analysis; Sports Marketing; Sports Business Management; Sports Development and Events Management.
