The paper explores design considerations for a Foundation Degree in Community Sports Coaching with a focus on cricket. We view coaching as social practice and explore the potential for seeing Community Sports Coaches as ‘agents of Citizenship Education’. Cricket’s position is historically ironic in post-colonial Britain, being both the game of the colonial elite yet also woven into the habitus of many disenfranchised communities. Many of our young-adult student coaches will come from and work within these communities; this has important social and cultural implications for identity formation, meaningful social participation and the potential for children and young people to learn in and through sport.
