Cricket Australia requires a coach to be selected to all junior matches within MyCricket. As such, all Junior coaches must have a ‘TEAM OFFICIAL – JUNIOR COACH’ role.
If the coach has not been registered to your club in MyCricket, then add them via the ‘Add a New Person’ page, then add the ‘TEAM OFFICIAL – JUNIOR COACH’ role to them.
MODE: Teams > MENU: People > Reconfirm / Change Person Roles > Add Role/Sub-Role ‘TEAM OFFICIAL – JUNIOR COACH’ to the person.
When selecting a team for a match, select the coach. If the coach does not appear it will be because Step 1 has not been completed.
MODE: Teams > MENU: Matches > Select Team
Why is a coach required to be selected against a junior team?
Cricket Australia is committed to ensuring all players play in a safe environment and have an enjoyable cricket experience. As a coach, you are in a unique position where you can influence players and parents. To support you in your role, it is incumbent upon Cricket Australia, State and Territory Associations, local associations and clubs to work together to help you provide this quality and safe environment. By ensuring each team has a currently accredited coach, we can assure players that their coach is up to date with The Australian Way Coaching Philosophy and what it means to create a safe environment.
Coaches who do not currently hold an accreditation should visit community.cricket.com.au/coach and register to become a coach.
