Metro Community Coaching Workshops 2015/16:

These free workshops are designed to provide Community Coaches and Representative Coaches with an extended repertoire of skills, activities and games to assist in challenging their players to progress along the Australian Cricket Pathway.

These workshops are interactive and each coach may bring two players to each workshop to participate in the various activities. Accredited Community Coaches may attend any of these free workshops, however they must register online via the adjacent links below prior to the session.

Topics include:
  • Scoring Runs – learn how to teach your players to score runs, off the front and back foot and how to stay in.
  • Taking Wickets – learn how to teach your players how to take wickets and save runs by bowling pace and spin, the latest catching and throwing approaches including wicket keeping specialties.
  • Leading the Game – learn how to coach your captain to make decisions in response to the game situation and how to create leaders within the playing group.
  • Inclusive Clubs & Coaches - This community workshop is the first of it’s kind that the WACA have held. It revolves around how to coach players that may have a disability or level of impairment, as well as tips for both coaches and clubs as to how to make their on and off field environments as inclusive as possible for all who would like to be involved in their cricket club.
