Tuesday 26 January

The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened our personal safety, disrupted our daily routines, uprooted our lives and shaken our world. It isn’t easy to maintain mental wellbeing, personal resilience and optimism when we are surrounded and affected by such unsettling uncertainty.

For anyone that needs to find hope and support through the power of shared experiences, Sussex Cricket has developed its new Mental Health & Wellbeing Hub, a free, online resource designed to help.

Completely free to use and totally anonymous with no registration required, the mobile-optimised platform has been created with the support and approval of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and developed in partnership with Frog Systems.

Stoolball England “Train the Trainers”

Monday 7 December 2020

On Sunday 7th & Sunday 14th November, Stoolball England launched their new coaching course. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, these were via an online meeting.

Stoolball England’s aim is to develop a team of freelance Coaching Trainers who will deliver exciting, creative and inclusive stoolball sessions. The training programme will enable Coaching Trainers to deliver course content in a classroom environment as well as practical coaching on the ground. Coaches will develop and deliver stoolball sessions at their own pace and fitting-in with their work-life balance. Coaches’ own continuing professional development (CPD) will be expected and encouraged by Stoolball England. Coaching Trainers will help develop this exciting, new programme.
