Coaches & Managers

Coaches & Managers will be announced after sign on day. All coaches will be expected to comply with Working with Children Ochre Card requirements.

In order for any teams to be able to participate, each team will need a manager, games day coach and a number of people to assist with coaching during the training days. Without a game day coach and manager we will not be able to field a team.

Managers will be the point of contact for all parents and will communicate any messages from the club or the coaches.

Coaching during the week

We are looking to appoint qualified coaches to plan and run the training sessions during the week. The club will pay for interested parents to achieve Cricket Australia Level 1 coaching accreditation. We are also looking for parents to help organise the kids on training days.


Thank you to all our fantastic parents inside our club who support all of our kids. We have many coaches, managers & parent helpers returning for 2019. If you can help in any way, however big or small, please let us know. Fundraising We quite often have different fundraising events which help keep our fees low. This could be selling sausages or drinks, quiz nights, mystery bus tours, wine and cheese nights, golf days and numerous other things. Please let us know if you are interested in helping or getting involved by indicating on the form or speaking to our committee. Many hands make light work and we have lots of fun!!


Our main source of information is through the website at www.nightcliffcc.org.au Email contact is another important form of communication we use to inform players of what’s happening inside the club & to communicate with your coach. If there are other questions you may have please contact info@nightcliffcc.org.au, your coach once known or the junior coordinator. If you are involved in an organisation who may be able to help through sponsorship it would be warmly welcomed. Looking forward to a great year!
