Coaching a Cricket Team Course

The Coaching a Cricket Team course (CACT) is free and is an ideal for intermediate hardball grades and softball coaches. The course offers a slightly more edgy exposure to the delivery of the game and will actively teach the coaches drills to continuously develop players skills at this level.

This course also has an online component together with the practical component. Coaches are required to attend the practical which is a hands on 3 hour session including batting, bowling and fielding skills and drills. After the practical, the online section is completed by the coach in their own time through the NZC cricket website.
