CricketWeb Coaching is looking for videos of players that need help with a certain aspect of their game.
Please email videos of the footage to James and he'll handle the sizing, etc of them.
If chosen the video may be used in a possible future section.
This is a chance to get great coaching advice based on your own personal game.
We look forward to seeing the clips of you playing.
This is pretty cool. I've been meaning to get advice for a while.
hmm I wonder where I can get a video camera from :(
do yall want footage of a match or like in the nets. which is preferred
Whatever you prefer, send both if you like :)
sounds like a great idea....good work guys.......mmm coaching i love it!
i am from england, i am the old ecb level 2 coach, the new one seems a bit of a doddle compared to what we had to do, been coaching for 11 years now, this is a great forum.
kind regards terry
thats funny, in Australia ive asked lvl 2 coaches and they said it was a lot easier to get 10 or 20 years ago.
level 2 ecb
i see when i did my level 2 coaching, we had video anylasis exam, batting and bowling, you had to demonstrate leg spin, off spin, in swing, away swing and make the ball at least offer to spin or swing. ie seam position in flight, you got 2 goes if cocked up failed!!! batting front font and back foot defensive and aggressive strokes, wicket keeping take down the legside and orthodox take, a 10 minute net session, bowling and batting, fielding, 3 disciplines infield and outfield, plus if you wanted to go onto level 3 then you had to score more than 3 out of 5 in each discipline!!!
plus another written exam on bio mechanics and sports science, plus a child welfare exam, and a first aid course.
needless to say the pass rate was at about 70%, now its a doddle ( i know my son has just done it )
wow ok that sounds much harder.
ECB possibly have different parameters than Qld Cricket which is the one Im actually using to get the certs.
i think the changes in the format of the level 2 is to try and accomodate school teachers, you see in england you cannot coach a net session with a hard ball unless you are level 2 or higher, thus the old level 2 was brought about before these new safety regs, its market was based on good quality cricketers ie good club/county players who want to go into coaching as a proffessian after their playing careers.
whereas now (for the better by the way) you do a small amount of the old stuff to get level 2 acredatation, and then you can progress onto level 3 by doing 5 modules on some of the good stuff i mentioned in the earlier thread.
Too right about the old Level 2 being infinitely harder! Spent the best part of my first year at Uni teaching myself how to bowl inswing in order to pass it - anyone can get through the UKCC2... and as for the UKCC1... well, if anyone ever fails that... (actually, people do, but it's because their paperwork's not in order).

Also, I'm pretty sure (read certain) you don't need a UKCC2 in order to take a net session. Who's told you that?
not so much the net session, but certainly with a hard ball, you need ecb level 2 to coach with a hard ball, yes you are right about the level 3 thats what i meant the 5 modules just get you too the door
Again, pretty certain that's not the case - I know at prep school level we play hardball across the board from U10 upwards: and most schools have more pitches, never mind nets, than L2 coaches...
