Coaching boost for NSC
A SHORTAGE of cricket coaches at the National Sports Council (NSC) looks likely to come to an imminent end.
MIDWEEK SPORT investigations have revealed that the state-owned entity is about to recruit five new coaches to fill a void that had been created following the departure of several coaches over the past few years.
The new batch is tipped to include a former West Indies cricketer, two former Barbados players, a former president of a local cricket club who has experience of working overseas, and a secondary school cricket coach.
With only two cricket coaches currently on the NSC staff – Thelston Payne and DaCosta Atherley – there have been severe challenges in meeting the demand for coaching services for age-group programmes in primary and secondary schools. (HG)
