Funded coaching courses – sign up now


The Norfolk Cricket Board has announced coaching courses for spring and summer 2023.

As a club, Swardeston is keen to hear from members who would be interested in enrolling on these courses. For some seasons Swardeston has funded these courses to encourage club members to become qualified.

A number of our current coaching team have benefitted from this support in recent years. The club will reimburse the costs once the course has been successfully completed.

Courses start from the age of 16 so if you are interested please contact in the first instance Chair Stuart Bartram on or 07714 126337.
