Adam has recently completed his ECB Level 3 qualification & is heavily involved in the cricket coaching at Caterham School, Surrey where he currently teaches PE. Although we don’t see too much of Adam until the school breaks up towards the end of June we hope to lean on his coaching experience / expertise later in the summer. The ECB Level 3 course takes a considerable amount of time & effort to obtain, not to mention the considerable cost, which ARCC made a contribution to in order for Adam to get this qualification ‘under his belt’. He will bring his youthful exuberance to Friday evenings no doubt from July when he will also be available for 1:1’s / 1:2’s coaching sessions.
Dom has played 1st XI cricket at ARCC since 2009 but is happy to turn out wherever & whenever he might be required these days as he’s also got two young children who will be starting All Stars this year at ARCC. He gained his ECB Level 2 Core Coach qualification last winter & is looking forward to putting it to good use this season & in the years to come with a view of potentially starting a Level 3 course next year. He’s happy to take on 1:1’s / 1:2’s on an ad hoc basis at the club.
