Take a course with Rounders England; we can offer you coaching awards at each level on the skills development pathway. If you are passionate about rounders and want to share your enthusiasm and passion, embark on a course, where you will be able to see for yourself the benefits it can provide.
If you are helping out at a team/league or group, assisting a coach, you do not need any formal qualification to get started. However, it is advisable that you gain some theoretical training to support the practical elements you will be learning in the field.
To coach independently, teams/leagues and National Governing Bodies (NGB) require you to have a minimum standard of training – often leading to a Level 2 sports-specific coaching qualification.
Umpiring is a great way to be involved in Rounders. It gives you the opportunity to give something back to the sport you love, whilst also helping to increase participation. There are opportunities to be involved in Rounders in a capacity that suits you, whether you want to umpire at your local team or progress to elite umpiring.
To progress in your specific sport you may wish to deepen your skills in another particular area by attending further training. Contributing to your own Continuous Professional Development is integral to your progression whether honing new skills or finding a new role.
