The Coach.

If you are interested in Coaching your son’s or daughter’s team, Wynnum Manly will support you to obtain the skills and training to do so.

At Wynnum Manly, like all junior sporting/community clubs, we rely heavily on our parent/carer volunteers to coach and run our teams. The ethos of ‘No Coach = No Team’ is true and current, and we like to think that with the right support and attitude we can create an ethos of ‘Great Coach = Great Team’. We encourage all parents & carers to get involved with cricket to support their children, meet other like-minded families and have a lot of fun.

Coaching a cricket team is a challenging and rewarding experience for a parent. If you are keen to give it a go, please contact club president, Danielle will love to hear from you, and will be able answer all and any questions you may have.

BLUE CARD

Wynnum-Manly District Cricket Club Junior committee requires all coaches and managers to obtain a current Blue Card from the Government of Queensland to ensure all children involved in the sport of cricket are safe and protected.

Coaching Education Requirements & Pathways

We are keen to support coaches with the appropriate level of training and resources, the following is the coaching accreditation steps. Please contact the club for further information.

Level 0 – an online 6 minute course, developed by Cricket Australia, this Level 0 must be obtained to apply for the Level 1 course. This also registers you apart of the Cricket Coaches Australia family and opens you to a variety of resources and communication.

Level 1 – a 1 day course help by a Queensland Cricket regional manager. This course ranges from the basic to the more complex training drills and skills. For even the most experienced cricketer, this course is always fun and resourceful. The Level 1 is a requirement to coach at Wynnum-Manly District Cricket Club.

Level 2 – As you become more committed to coaching and the club, the committee may see fit to put you through the level 2 course which is a week long course held by Queensland Cricket. This covers more programming training schedules, fixtures, rotations, and more complex and skill orientated drills.

Level 3 – The highest level, this is personal journey that only very few make the time to accomplish, used for professional coaches and clinics.
