This programme has been designed to give Primary Teachers or those working within Key Stage 2 the confidence to deliver cricket using a variety of small sided games and practices which can be delivered indoors and outdoors with limited cricket facilities. The course length is 4 hours.

Consider how aspects of knowledge at KS2 can be integrated into cricket.
Integrate and apply key education aspects (KS2) within cricket coaching sessions.
Practice using the Howzat! resource to plan for and deliver cricket specific games and practices.
