Level One Coaching Course

This course combines practical sessions and personal study and is
intended for those coaches of 11-a-side teams of Year 7 level and up.
It focuses on planning, the coaching of skills through the principles of
biomechanics, and demonstrating an understanding of effective team
coaching and the game.
Auckland Cricket delivers the NZC Level One coaching course in a modular
format. Six modules make up the qualification and each module is
delivered 3-4 times annually at different venues throughout the year.
To successfully complete the qualification, participants must attend all
six modules within a two year period. However, coaches with a
'Coaching a Cricket Team' (CACT) qualification can attend one-off

2. The Practice Session & The Match Day (2.5 hrs)
3. Batting (3 hrs)
4. Bowling (3 hrs)
5. Fielding & Wicket Keeping (3 hrs)
6. Umpiring (3 hrs - doubling as a Level One umpiring qualification delivered by the ACUSA)
