We are delighted to announce an expansion of our one to one coaching programme at The Cooper Associates County Ground. The programme enables players from eight years old to be coached in a personal environment by experienced and expert Somerset coaches. All SCB coaches are ECB qualified to a high level and trained to be able to work on all aspects of a players game.
Players will receive personal feedback from the coach and a coaching card to take away to aid their development away from the programme. This year we have added three new coaches to our coaching team:
