MID Canterbury Cricket District Cricket Philosophies and Job Descriptions
The MCCA is fully aligned with New Zealand Cricket’s and Canterbury Cricket’s strategic plans around various ‘Age & Stage’ and ‘Balance is Better’ philosophies and as such it is important that our volunteer coaches, managers and people involved understand this.
As such there are some rules around the level of expertise at various coaching levels.
One non-negotiable is that all managers and coaches or assistant coaches must be Police Vetted which is fundamental in meeting Child Protection Law.
At Junior and Youth District Cricket Level, District coaches are now required to have completed Police Vetting and Vulnerable Children Modules online via the NZC system. Coaches also require a minimum of an Advanced Foundation Coaching Certification for Year 7 teams down and a Development Level Coaching Certification for Year 8 and above teams e.g. the SIPST team, U15 and U17 teams.
If your level of certification is below the required level you will need to work with Mid Canterbury Cricket to upgrade your certification to the required level prior to going to any tournaments with a team.
Enthusiasm to learn, coach and manage the players through the season is obviously a big part of the job too.
Below you will find various documented policies related to this.
