Twenty-six coaches including one American successfully completed the Cricket West Indies Level 1 Coaching Course at Sabina Park, on the weekend.

The course was a mix of theory and practical sessions as well as a written exam on the final day.

The course consisted of various topics such as batting, fast bowling, spin bowling, fielding, wicket keeping, biomechanics, fitness in cricket, mental fitness, lesson plan writing and introduction to how children learn.

Glen Felix, the lone American, says he would recommend the course to all coaches.
