IOMCA Community Player & Coach Expectations
The IOMCA strive to deliver cricket activities as part of their community programme (i.e. holiday camps and the skill development programme) that offer children a safe, positive and inclusive place that helps them to focus and improve their techniques, skillsets and love for the game. Coaches will be able to cater for all players, whatever their experience level with personalised training designed to help players reach their full potential. We want to coach players of all abilities how to become the best possible cricketer they can be. Therefore, we offer a structured learning environment for cricketers and have high standards of behaviour to allow players to improve, flourish and practice in a safe environment.
We believe improving skills, enjoying sessions and putting in their best performance on the field are achieved by how players go about their business. We expect players to listen quietly when the coach is explaining things (and the coach will do the same to the player), give 100% effort and stay focused in training and matchplay.
