MYCA Successfully Host ACF Level 2 Coaching Certification Program Sponsored by Hammer Cricket

The Missouri Youth Cricket Association hosted a successful American Cricket Federation (ACF) Level 2 Coaching Certification Program in St. Charles, MO on October 10 and 11. As a result there are now 11 new ACF Level 2 certified coaches in St. Louis Region, who would further strengthen youth cricket development in the region. Mr. Jatin Patel, ACF’s Director of Coaching conducted the program.

Day 1 started with a Level 1 Coaching Certification session attended by 14 Coaches. The session was very informative and Mr. Patel kept everyone focused with his very effective presentation skills that included lots of hands-on drills for the participants. The Level 1 session also included a ninety-minute theoretical session including cricket rules, roles of a coach, player appraisal/recognition, coaching styles, coaching techniques, and more.

The post lunch session on Day 1 included a four-hour high performance camp for youth, where participating MYCA youth players received some very constructive and valuable tips to improve their batting and bowling techniques. The kids actively participated in the workshop and appreciated the new development tips they received during the session. The spectator parents were also amazed at the quality of the workshop and the effectiveness of the session.

The Day 2 morning session was primarily focused on higher coaching techniques. Mr. Patel demonstrated the use of a mirror for improving batting techniques. It was followed by an extended session on fielding and bowling. The session ended with a Q & A Session.

The post lunch session on Day 2 included a 20-Overs MYCA youth game, with the coaches assigned to evaluate individual players and the overall game progress. At every tenth over mark, they got together and held a group discussion led by Mr. Patel. It was very effective. At the end of the game, all the players once again received individual feedback.

Thanks again to Mr. Jatin Patel for partnering with Missouri Youth Cricket Association in conducting this coaching certification program. It will definitely help MYCA provide better coaching to our young cricketers and in the coming years it would serve as the catalyst for producing some quality young cricketers in the St. Louis Region.
