School Ambassador Program
The School Ambassador Program aims to recruit, and recognise a teacher in each Australian school who is committed to ensuring their students have every opportunity to get involved in cricket.
The program aligns with the Australian Curriculum, Australian Cricket Pathway Skill Competencies and The Australian Way Coaching Philosophy which provides you with resources, training, professional development opportunities and great rewards.
As a National Sporting Organisation, Cricket Australia is taking the responsibility to train, resource and genuinely reward teachers to deliver high quality programs and ensure students participating have fun whilst developing skills and education to play club cricket.
The activities are easy to deliver. The program has a stronger focus on catering for individual needs, focusing on skills - not drills, game sense, using the equipment in various ways for greater levels of engagement and development, increased focus of fun competitions and challenges and higher levels of inclusion where the school ambassador plays more of a facilitator role.
