Guernsey will host the 2012 ICC Europe coach development conference: “Player Potential to Performance”. It takes place in January with 26 coaches attending from 14 countries.

The conference provides a player-centred approach to coach development. The conference will take coaches on a journey from how to identify and nurture talented cricketers to implementing strength and conditioning programmes to support their development.

“The conference is about taking coaches on a journey and offering them an insight into key topics that face talented young players,” said Chris Porter, ICC Europe regional development officer. “The player pathway is always changing, however we need to ensure that coaches are in tune with the players and are able to support them during this journey.

“Overall it is great opportunity for coaches to meet the excellent presenters and other coaches to share ideas and experiences.”
