Coaches Climb The Ladder

Sultan Rana, ACC Development Manager and Peter Hanlon, Education and Training Manager of Cricket Australia took the opportunity at the ACC Development Staff Coordination Committee Meeting in Kuala Lumpur in August to formally appraise all the participants of the ACC Coaching Courses over the past 12-18 months.

57 Level 2 Coaches and 36 Level 1 Coach Educators were adjudged to have satisfied all requirements prior to being assessed by a recognised Cricket Australia/Asian Cricket Council representative. Another further 51 candidates who have taken part in Level 1 courses are awaiting the results of their examinations. These numbers represent a 15% - 25% rise in the number of qualified coaches in the Asia region. "Cricket Australia will work with the ACC to ensure that such an assessment can be carried out in the near future so that they can gain their formal accreditation," said Messrs. Rana and Hanlon.
