Middlesex Cricket is seeking to appoint three volunteers to form part of the Middlesex Coaches Association (MCoA) Coach Ambassadors network. The South and Central vacancies have arisen because of the retirement of the current post holders. The Women’s & Girls’ Coaching Ambassador is a new role to reflect the significant growth of women’s and girls’ cricket in the county.
Coaches play a key role in igniting a lifelong love of the game, inspiring and supporting players to develop and helping them enhance their skills. There is a growing demand for coaching from players. We know that players who receive coaching are more satisfied with their cricketing experience and more likely to recommend the game to friends and family.
Coaching and coaches are critical to the future of the game. Fulfilling this need is essential if we are to meet the growing demand for coaching and to inspire and develop the players and coaches of the future. We also know that coaches are hungry to learn and develop but sometimes they do not know what is available to support their own development and improve players’ experiences.
You will be part of a dedicated Volunteer Leadership Group of the Middlesex Coaches Association who form part of the Middlesex Recreational Cricket Committee. We are a county that embraces difference, pushes the boundaries on what can be achieved and wants to lead on the national stage. We believe in the power of sport, in its ability to unify communities, develop people and improve environments so that everyone can take part and thrive in cricket!
