Coach Development Program

So our members (both junior and senior) can better enjoy the game of cricket, we normally run a comprehensive coaching program for the season. As we run these programs evey year, they continue to be developed and improved thanks to member feedback.

The program is based on the Coach-the-Coaches (CTC) principle. That is, we get experts to teach our coaches how to teach the players.

We are very excited about this program and urge all coaches to attend. It should make a difference to your ability to impart knowledge, and hopefully that will make your life easier, and will result in greater enjoyment for the players as well as greater on-field success.

The extensive programs have featured former NSW and Australian bowler Wayne Holdsworth as the pace bowling coach;  former Tasmanian and Australian XI wicketkeeper Mark Atkinson as the wicket-keeping/fielding/spin bowling coach; and former first grade opening bat and Petersham captain Graham Doig as the batting coach, amongst many other notable players and coaches.

We are also lucky to have our very own Club Coach (and founding member of SHCC) Glenn Holdstock who shows coaches how to discover players’ technical problems and – importantly – how to remedy them.

Summer Hill Cricket Club normally covers the total cost of this program, thanks to the kind assistance of chief sponsor Canterbury & Hurlstone Park RSL, and others.

Club Coach: The club coach is Glenn Holdstock. As well as running the “Planning a Coaching Session” clinics and the “Player Analysis & Correction” component, Glenn will be able to offer assistance to budding coaches and help reinforce the messages from the coaching program.

Level Ones: All coaches should have Level One Accreditation from Cricket Australia – it’s not time consuming to get (less than a day), and you’ll learn a lot about coaching in general and coaching cricket in particular. Be sure to take the opportunity to get one, if you haven’t already. Contact the club to put you on an upcoming list.
