Safeguarding / First Aid / DBS
All new and existing coaches must have attended Safeguarding & Protecting Children and First Aid courses and have completed a DBS check. These must be updated every 3 years.
To be a qualified cricket coach you must attend an ECB approved First Aid course every three years. In Gloucestershire the courses are run by the GCB’s approved First Aid provider, Malcolm Griffiths of Crucial First Aid. If you have an existing First Aid qualification from work or coaching different sport and want to check if this covers you to coach cricket please email Theresa.firstname.lastname@example.org
