Coach and Manager Resources

The aim is to make junior cricket engaging to get more kids  playing . (Summary of NZ Cricket's "ages for stages" programme HERE)

You don't need a strong background or skills in cricket to coach or manage. What you do need is enthusiasm and an ability to manage a group of kids.

  • NZ Cricket run a series of courses suitable for all junior coaching levels and details can be found HERE . Wellington Collegians Junior Club pays any fees associated with the courses and encourages all coaches (and potential coaches) to do the Foundation and Advanced Foundation courses.
  • To register as a coach please visit HERE and once registered you can check on your progress HERE.
