Q: To Whom it may Concern: The English Football Association rewards schools that offer high quality football an award (Charter Standard), through passing simple tasks (e.g. offering football in the curriculum, having a qualified football coach etc), I was wondering if the ECB offer the same as I am a qualified cricketcoach and wish my school (I'm a teacher) to be recognised for the high quality cricket that we offer. Thanks Chris Graham

A: Hello Chris. In short, the answer to the question is no we don’t. This is not an area that's being looked at at present. Our new strategy Building Partnerships puts the development emphasis on working through Focus Clubs, so a move into charter mark for cricket in schools is unlikely.

Q: I was wondering how I can apply to get on the first level of cricket coaching awards and if there are any available events around the Sheffield area? Thanks

A: Please see our Coach Education section for info and contacts.

Q: Hello i am Prakash from india and i wanna do course of ecb level 1 and level 2 of cricket coaching so can you just assist me regarding the course like where i have to apply,what is a fees and do you people provide a visa letter for that.

A: Hello Prakash - please see our Coaching - Contacts page for numbers/email to contact for further info you require.

Q: hi i am currently studying sport and exercise science and have to write a fitness program for a cricket player. what sort of fitness tests do you administer to your players, any info would be useful even a contact name of someone who could help thanks katie

A: Hi Katie - would suggest it's probably better to approach someone at a local level, maybe at your nearest county cricket club, so that you can get some detailed info from a coach there. All are linked from the logos down the RHS column of the website.

Q: Can I get One to One sessions fora cheap price

A: You'd need to find a coach in your local area. Probably best if you make contact with your local club(s) to see who they can recommend.

Q: I am an A-level student writing a paper on how technology affects performance? I would be gratful if you could send any information on this subject to me. Many thanks Mark.

A: Hello Mark - don't have any ready-made info that we can send you. Think you need to speak to someone to analyse this properly; so maybe it might be worth trying to speak to a coach at your nearest County, to see what technology they utilise in different areas and how it is applied to improve player performance.

Q: what qualifications are necessary in order to become a competant coach, and be eligible to go coaching overseas? and how do i go about acquiring these qualifications?

A: See our Coach Education section for details on ECB qualifications; and contacts for further info as required.

Q: I asked a question re coaching course costs a week ago and have seen no reply. Does this mean I am not going to get one or should I wait longer?

A: We do make it quite clear that we don't promise to answer every question posted - simply don't have the resources. But as you've asked twice we'll look back and see if we can answer your previous posting shortly.

Q: AFTER READING THE QUESTION ON THE TOPIC OF CRICKET IN COVENTRY I AM A UKCC 2 COACH AND AM LOOKING TO GO INTO FULL TIME COACHING IN THE NEAR FUTURE AND WOULD BE INTERESTED IN WORKING ALONG WITH THE ECB IN DEVELOPING CRICKET IN THE CITIES AND BEYOND..PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ECB AND THE PERSON WHO SENT THE QUESTION IN [IF POSSIBLE] PETER GIBBARD

A: Don't know which question re Coventry you're referring to. But you'd want to make contact with the Warwickshire Cricket Board to see what assistance they needed.

Q: I live in Peterborough a City of 400,000 people with no cricket club for city centre dwellers. We have a huge young asian community and some bat and bowl in the nets and look pretty decent players but there's no proper pitch, no opposition, no coaching and no encouragement. All the pretty villages like Deepings and so on have well established cricket clubs with pitches and pavilions, scoreboards and leagues (frequented mostly by the white middle class people who can afford to live there). Can the ECB please investigate the City urgently and exert some influence, to capitalise on the success of the Ashes, and get young (often bored) white, black and asian kids in the city playing cricket. It will help give them some sense of direction, teach terrific values like sportsmanship and teamwork, be healthy outdoor exercise and bring an increasingly divided community together (47 languages are spoken in Peterborough - it's the home of the passport office and one of the centres for asylum seekers). We really need the ECB to start the ball rolling for us. Please help

A: Have passed this on internally to the Hunts Cricket Board for them to look at.
