The National Cricket Academy (NCA) has undertaken an initiative to conduct a refresher course for the existing accredited coaches of the BCCI in conjunction with Cricket Australia.
“In pursuance of this objective, the BCCI and CA have partnered to conduct this course and CA was gracious enough to readily accept and depute their faculty to conduct the Level 2 coaching courses at the NCA from March 21 to April 1, 2017,” the BCCI said in a release on Tuesday.
CA’s faculty will conduct the Level 2 coaching courses from March 21 to April 1, 2017 for two batches of 25 coaches each. The first batch will have 25 women coaches, while the second one will consist of 25 men coaches, with plans being put into place to have more such courses to re-certify the BCCI qualified coaches.
“The opening session of the program detailed the approach and methodology in coaching, which has seen a paradigm shift, and this proves that the initiative to update the coaches on the contemporary methodologies, is a move in the right direction,” the BCCI said. The primary objective of the course will be to exchange information and broaden the knowledge by having plenty of interactions.
“A number of such initiatives are being chalked out in the future, wherein BCCI and CA will work towards a common goal where top cricketing countries can combine their intellectual abilities and contribute towards the development of the game.”
