Four Guyanese coaches have successfully completed Phase One and Two of the WICB/ECB Level Three Coaching Course which was held in Barbados from May to June, 2016. Phase One was conducted May 1- 8, and Phase Two May 31 – June 4.
The Level Three Course is the highest certifying Coaching Programme to be conducted in the Caribbean under the auspices of the WICB and the local Coaches who attended are Guyana Jaguars’ Head Coach Esuan Crandon, Assistant Coach Rayon Griffith, National Under-15 Coach Julian Moore and the Territorial Development Officer, Colin Stuart.
Crandon and Griffith have been at the helm of the Guyana Jaguars when they won back to back PCL Regional 4-Day Tournament Titles in 2015-2016 while Moore has been the Coach of the winning Under-15 teams over the same period. Stuart has jurisdiction over the National Coaching Programmes.
Both phases of the Coaching Course were conducted by the England Cricket Board (ECB). The first section captured relevant information regarding advanced concepts on batting, spin bowling and fielding, skill acquisition, coaching philosophy inclusive of an examination of the Myers-Briggs Type indicators (MBTI), tactical analysis and decision making.
The second section of phase one examined suspect bowling actions, its identification, recommended
procedures and remediation processes. GCB Territorial Development Officer, Colin Stuart, said he feels that the course is a worthwhile one, since it provided some new concepts which can be used to carefully identify the natural abilities of players upon which additional and suitable information may be filtered to players to ensure their growth.
Phase Two explored principles surrounding biomechanics, wicket keeping training and match approaches, essential elements of pace bowling, psychological profiling of players and three (3) assessment activities which targeted individual coaching, Group coaching and player assessment, analysis and remediation.
With the successful completion of the course, Guyana is now equipped with four WICB/ECB Level Three Coaches.
Stuart said that he felt that the programme was valuable to all participants across the region. He further said that in short, the course placed emphasis on the importance of individuality, the incorporation of technical and tactical approaches to coaching, the relevance of psychology in cricket – inclusive the psychological profiling of players, the importance of building structural relations among team members so as to ensure productivity, effectively assessing suspect bowling actions, discussing possible alternatives or solutions and exploring a variety of drills suited for remediation of bowlers.
The necessity of correct observation, analysis, record keeping, the effective transfer of player information throughout the coaching chain, and of course, the essential need of upholding established WICB/ECB standards and procedures.
GCB Secretary Anand Sanasie shared that this course is another phase in the overall plan of the GCB to set up a robust coaching structure across the country. He posited that in another year’s time the goal is to have 30 Level Two coaches and 100 Level One Coaches across the country. He further stated that from next year the intention is to have only Level Two and higher Coaches appointed to representative national teams at all levels with the senior squad being coached by two Level Three coaches.
