Cheshire Cricket Board Player Pathway

The Cheshire Cricket Board Player Pathway offers an annual coaching programme for boys & girls to develop their skills, and reach their full cricketing potential.

'The pathway' is overseen by Performance Manager, Gavin Colebourn, with courses delivered by our team of ECB Level 3/4 coaches. All of our coaches are fully vetted, and hold up to date First Aid, Safeguarding & DBS certificates.

Players can enter 'the pathway' through our Summer, Autumn, or Advanced programmes.
Please note – entry via the Advanced programme must come on the back of a nomination from a Cheshire based community cricket club or Cheshire Cricket Board coach.

We offer cricket courses for players between the ages of 5-19, with further details on all of our available courses below.
