Teachers / Coaches


USACA are hoping significantly grow participation in cricket at junior and youth age groups. To do this it is critical to up-skill volunteers, coaches and teachers in how to promote the fun and enjoyment from being involved in cricket.

This page has a number of useful links and resources for volunteers, coaches and teachers to add to your coaching skill-set!

Requesting a Coach Education Course

USACA is currently reviewing its coach education system with a vision to educate significantly more coaches across America in 2013 and beyond. This focus is especially for coaches and teachers who will work with junior / youth cricketers in schools and clubs.

If your school, district, club or league would like to educate a group of coaches, and can guarantee more than 20 coaches in attendance and a course venue, USACA will work with you to try and resource the course with a qualified educational trainer.  

Please note not all request may be able to be met in the timeframes requested and there will be a fee per participant (or course) to cover course expenses.
