The NMCA Women’s Skills Masterclass Program runs for several weeks each September. The sessions, held at an indoor centre, are facilitated by experienced players – our past coaches include Karen Rolton, Tammy Foster, Nat Schilov and Kristy Lamb.
The aim of the Masterclass Series is to:
Provide a welcoming, friendly and supportive introduction to cricket
Provide a friendly and supporting introduction to basic cricket skills – throwing, catching, holding a bat, batting, running between wickets, bowling
Provide a more detailed skills basis for experienced players covering – different types of bowling, wicket keeping, different batting techniques and stances
Create an environment where women and girls new to cricket can feel supported, safe and encouraged to participate and learn new skills
Provide a well organised, smooth and fun session that allows players to get to know each other and increase personal confidence and team bonding
