KINGSTON, Jamaica – Cricket West Indies (CWI) in partnership with the Jamaican Cricket Association, will be delivering a week-long series of coach development events across Jamaica next week.

The aim of the initiative is to provide accessible ongoing personal development opportunities for local coaches to further prepare and inspire them to have a positive impact on the players within their communities.

The events will include several two-day practical coaching components of the CWI Competition Coaching Course (Level 1), which will be held at both the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium on December 5 and 6 and Sabina Park in Kingston on December 8 to 9.

Four CWI coach development workshops will also be held each evening following the preceding accreditation courses. These free workshops are open to all previously accredited coaches and will cover both “spin bowling” and “batting against spin” on alternate nights. Former West Indies and Jamaica spin bowler, Nikita Miller and current CWI Academy head coach, Andre Coley, will also be involved in the delivery of these events which will utilise some talented young spin bowlers and batters from each locale.

In addition, former West Indies captain and current CWI Director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, will be involved in the delivery of all events, alongside CWI coach development manager, Chris Brabazon, and local coach developers, Philip Service and Gibbs Williams.
