COACH LICENCE SCHEME 
from the England Squash Website

England Squash are pleased to report that they will be implementing a Coach License Scheme (CLS) from 1st September 2002.

This scheme will be a fundamental tool, unique within squash, that will act as a contractual agreement between the Governing Body and a qualified coach (Level 2 and above). This new initiative will act as a continuous professional development programme and in turn enable coaches to improve their knowledge of modern coaching methods and sport sciences through training opportunities and attendance on workshops, seminars, conferences and events.

How will the CLS system work?

England Squash are committed to a scheme whereby each coach meets a minimum standard, which is a prerequisite prior to gaining the three year licence. The basic requirements, which have now been agreed are as follows:-

Hold an England Squash Coaching qualification or equivalent Levels 2 and above
Be a current member of England Squash including Public Liability Cover
Hold a current First Aid Certificate having attended an Appointed Persons Course
Attend a scUK Good Practice and Child Protection Workshop * - 3 hour duration
Attend a scUK Equity In Your Coaching Workshop * 3 hour duration
Completion of a Child Protection Personal Disclosure Form

* Details relating to the access of scUK (sports coach UK) workshops are listed below.

Licences will only be available from 1st September 2002 with coaches having until 1st December 2002 to comply with the basic requirements. Those individuals qualifying as Level 2 coaches and above from September 2002 onwards will receive further details with their necessary certification.

Once a coach has met the aforementioned criteria, a licence will be granted for a three year period. During the three years, a coach will accredit themselves to the CLS by meeting criteria that will be measured by credits. The credits must be accumulated on a yearly basis and not immediately prior to the licence expiring. England Squash will provide further details about the credit system prior to the licence commencing.

From a coaching perspective, the introduction of a licence will be an important step forward. It will enable coaches to significantly increase their knowledge, enhance their profile as a highly reputable England Squash coach as well as allowing the association to promote coaches to schools, clubs, centres, local authorities and counties so that everyone can make an informed choice when employing a suitably qualified coach.

England Squash look forward to working with coaches on this exciting project, which will build and develop relationships between both parties and lead to greater mutual benefit.
