“When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves” -William Arthur Ward, American Educationalist and Author

This is the philosophy that drives the Cricket Wellington Coachforce department and their coach education programme. Cricket Wellington regards coaches and coaching as critical to its overall strategic success.

Consequently, Cricket Wellington wants every cricketer to have access to an appropriately qualified coach to ensure they reach their potential or desired level of leisure, activity or competition.
