My Leading Coaches have been successfully coaching with me for a number of years and have the ability to work independently with players and coordinate programs. They have coaching accreditation & current Working with Children clearance. These coaches are people I have taught at school, coached or played sport with or against and have an expert knowledge of sports coaching and exhibit the qualities of leadership, inspiring others, compassion, patience and desire to help others to develop their skills, technique and confidence.
Junior Cricket Coaches
I handpick my junior coaches. They are all keen sports people who I have taught at school, personally coached or have been team mates. They have coaching accreditation & current Working with Children clearance. I look for personable, adaptable young people who communicate well with children and adults alike and enjoy the camaraderie of the coaching team environment. I mentor them as they learn my program and eventually supervise their own groups at holiday clinics and progress to conducting private coaching sessions.
“A big thank you to your team of very enthusiastic professionals, I enjoy watching you guys in action as much as the boys enjoy coming.”
