Cricket Namibia launched the first-ever Cricket Coaches Association on Wednesday.

The association is aimed at upskilling cricket coaches with the objective to set and maintain the standard of coaching in Namibia.

It will also be responsible to oversee that the coaching profession promotes good practice and develops quality cricket coaches in the country.

'The coaches' association's purpose is to inspire and champion coaching excellence, advance the coaching profession and make a sustainable difference to individuals, organisations and society,' read a statement from Cricket Namibia.



Great opportunity

The coordinator of the Cricket High Performance Centre, Dee Thakur, said it is a great opportunity to involve all cricket coaches in Namibia to be aligned with national high-performance programmes. “We are extending this initiative to schools, clubs, coaches, parents and interested individuals. With this initiative, we would like to produce quality cricketers, increase participation of the game and align coaching under the strategic vision of Cricket Namibia.”

The initiative is open to qualified coaches as well as the general public, and women are encouraged to take part.
