A large part of the BCB?s development plan is to increase the number of qualified coaches and to maintain coaching standards across the island. In addition to learning how to coach bowling, fielding and batting, the courses will provide the know-how for coaches to plan detailed training sessions and yearly training programmes. They will learn how to present effectively during 'classroom' or group coaching sessions and they will examine the role of the coach and the skills and abilities that lead to effective coaching. The BCB would like to encourage all interested parties particularly the youth league coaches and senior club coaches to sign up and get qualified."
