The Vanuatu Cricket Association conducted an Introductory Cricket Coach Education course for School Cricket Ambassadors at the Police College conference room from 15th to 16th March 2017.
14 teachers from schools around south Efate attended the two day coaching course to gain and improve their basic knowledge and awareness of the game of cricket especially when working with kids.
“VCA is working closely with these School Cricket Ambassadors giving trainings as such to keep them well equipped with a fair knowledge of the game and how to run training sessions to improve the skills of school kids they work with and giving more children a chance to play cricket,” said McMillan Markia, VCA’s Competitions, Umpiring & Scoring Development Officer.
The participants represented Lycee LAB, Ecole Saint Jean D’Arc, Vila SDA, Seaside Community, Sorovanga, Survival School, Suango, Ecole Saint Joseph, Ecole D’Anambrou, Erakor Bilingual, Kawenu, Eratap School and Prima Christian School. At the end of the training, the School Cricket Ambassadors received certificates.
“I would like to thank VCA for the two days cricket coaching course. I believe the teachers really enjoyed these two days and learnt alot and it was a great experience for us who are new to the game,” said Sophie Grace Ravo of Seaside Community School.
