Coach Development


Coaching in organisation and leadership settings is a valuable tool for developing people across a wide range of needs. For cricket, coaching is a form of development in which an experienced person, the cricket coach, supports an individual cricketer in achieving specific personal cricket goals, and supports a team in achieving specific team goals by providing training and guidance.

The Framework provides a vision, establishes consistent national parameters, and aligns the roles of the key players for coach development in Queensland. The objective of the Queensland Cricket Coaching Framework is to improve Queensland’s Cricket coaching system & develop a clear coaching pathway from underage team to state team level with an emphasis on performance. 

After completing Cricket Australia's accreditation options, continuing to upskill yourself as a coach is important to ensure your players are being exposed to the best environment possible. Ongoing learning is paramount for all coaches to stay up to date with the latest techniques and philosophies.

Queensland Cricket has appointed a Coaching & Talent Development Specialist (C&TS) in every region across the state to provide a range of coach development and support options to cricket coaches of all levels. 

Club Visits

Local Queensland Cricket Coaching & Talent Development Specialists are available to attend club training sessions and help upskill local community club coaches. 

These sessions can cover a variety of topics, from how to run effective net sessions, setting up fun and engaging fielding activities or even some more technical skill development. 

The aim of these sessions is for the Coaching & Talent Development Specialists to upskill to club coach to enable them to continue to learn and improve the quality of local coaching.  Club coaches will still run the session, with the Coaching & Talent Development Specialist assisting and providing feedback and education throughout.

Club Visits can be arranged by directly contacting your local Coaching & Talent Development Specialists or your club’s Coaching Coordinator can contact them on your behalf.
