Cricket Australia Coaching

Accreditation

The Introduction to Coaching Course now consists of 7 short online modules.

 

Context - These modules have been developed to assist junior cricket (Stages 1, 2 and 3) and community coaches by outlining important information for all new coaches and include strategies and resources that will help to create fun and engaging learning environments and one that allows all participants to enjoy the game, develop new skills, meet new friends, and have some success along the way.

Coaches should note that the learning assumes no experience in cricket or coaching. It is important for all coaches to complete this learning so Australian cricket is aligned in giving the kids a great experience.
