Lord's Taverners Empower Disability Cricket Coaching
The Lord’s Taverners have been developing a range of resources to support disability cricket coaches. Whilst there are innovative ways to coach young people with disabilities to play cricket, many coaches may not have experience working with a range of impairment groups.
Through guidance on best practice, top tips, and practical solutions these resources should not only instil greater confidence in those coaching, but advise on different ways to be creative with it and, therefore, more engaging for the participants. You may be a cricket coach already or completely new to cricket coaching, but you may not have coached people with disabilities.
These resources are developed with the aim of assisting you in your approach to coaching people across all four impairment groups including visually impaired, hearing impaired, physical disabilities, and learning disabilities. The resources are available in a range of forms, from video resources to an online guide.
The video resources in particular are designed with the specific intention of filling a gap in the market in terms of providing disability specific advice and support, something that is particularly vital for coaches who have not worked with the relevant disability groups.
The resources have been developed as part of the ‘Whole Sport Plan’; a national disability programme headed by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB). We hope that the resources will provide more opportunities for young people with disabilities to play cricket as a result, whilst we in turn will continue to develop more resources to support the coaching workforce within disability cricket.
