Middlesex Coaches Association – 2018 Coaching Awards
The 2018 Middlesex Coaching Awards Scheme starts NOW. The Middlesex Coaches Association (MCoA) recognises and rewards the achievements of Middlesex coaches through the MCoA Annual Coaching Awards Scheme.
These awards are open to MCoA members coaching in Middlesex in three categories:
Here are the 2017 Middlesex award winners receiving their ECB and Middlesex awards – Raj Kanagaraj (Outstanding Contribution (ECB Award)) from Graham Thorpe, Jim Clarke (Coach of the Year (ECB Award)) from Graham Thorpe and Mark Barrell (Young Coach (Middlesex Award)) from Richard Johnson.
The 2018 Middlesex award winners will receive an engraved trophy and, for the Young Coach of the Year, the MCoA will donate £100 towards the purchase of coaching equipment. The presentation to the Middlesex winners will take place on Thursday 29 November 2018 (venue to be confirmed). The criteria for each award category with guidance notes for those nominating are described in the attached document. Nomination forms for each of the three categories are also attached below.
Nominations on the appropriate form, with supporting justification from a MCoA proposer and seconder (club, school or community coaches) or from a club official, should be sent to Rod Croucher, Chairman MCoA Committee, by cop Monday 29 October 2018 at this email address [email protected].
There has been some fantastic coaching in Middlesex in 2018, and these awards are one means of recognising and rewarding the excellent work of our Middlesex coaches, who have done so much for the game this year. So, start writing your nominations now.
Middlesex Coaches Association
The Middlesex Coaches Association (MCoA) plays a key role in the management of Middlesex cricket coaching activities. It is responsible for coach affiliation and development and makes an important contribution to the development of the coach education programme of courses.
The overarching national authority for cricket coaches is the England and Wales Cricket Board Coaches Association (ECB CA), the purpose of which is to inspire participation and maximise performance of cricket coaches and players. The ECB CA enables individuals to obtain formal coaching qualifications and accreditation, through coach education, and supports them through their coaching journeys.
The MCoA is the ‘voice’ of ECB CA in Middlesex, it implements the principles of the ECB CA in the county, acts as a conduit for the flow of information between ECB CA members in Middlesex and the ECB CA itself (that is not passed directly) and helps coordinate cricket coaching activities in Middlesex, particularly coach development.
The MCoA works closely with the Middlesex Cricket Participation Team (for coach education and coach development) and with the Youth Cricket Department (for coaching at the performance-level) to ensure the coordinated training, development and management of coaches in Middlesex, and to support coaching in the club, community and performance-level structure.
