Queensland Cricket has a Junior Coaching Manual for all interested coaches.

The manual gives junior coaches an 'easy to understand' approach to coaching children between the ages of 5 and 12.

The Manual includes:

  • Tips on Coaching Children
  • The Basic Skills of Cricket
  • Season & Session Planning Templates
  • Warm Up Games
  • Skills and Drills Activities
  • Modified Games
  • MILO in2CRICKET 10 week program.

"The biggest benefit is that the diary offers junior coaches a place to start their coaching journey" said QC Coach Education and Training manager Jeff Thomas.

"It also holds useful information about utilizing parents and volunteers and learning from other coaches."

In addition to having examples of training sessions ready for use, the manual also houses many blank session planning templates to encourage coaches to create their own sessions.

The manual is designed to fit in the palm of your hand, and is ring-bound from the top. This makes the manual easy to use whilst at training or at the game.

The Queensland Cricket Junior Coaching Manual costs $22.
