In May 2016,The Education Programme’s Managing Director, Richard was proud to provide and sponsor the EPL “All Stars Cricket Tournament” - What a great success it proved to be with our students!
This activity was new for Summer 2015 and has proven to be one of the most popular of our programme choices. We specialise in coaching and developing skills in team invasion games combined with mainstream sports. Our Head Cricket coach Mark has recently won north west coach of the year for under-11′s cricket, and is a fully qualified level 2 coach. Cricket is a sport he has played the since he was 7 years old, and one he is very passionate about. He is also a qualified umpire and most recently has coached Oldham Under-11’s to 2 league titles. Mark is also qualified to level 1 in sports coaching for rugby league, basketball, football, handball, athletics and lacrosse. In addition to these sports we also find success in games such as dodgeball and netball. We pride ourselves in designing packages through which children work collaboratively in pairs, small groups, teams or even as a whole class or group; this is also relevant in our Sports Invasion programme.
