Coaching

Coaches play a vital role in developing people through sport. They provide players with the skills and knowledge needed to develop, improve and succeed and have a major influence over participants' enjoyment of sport. It is essential that our coaches provide players (and their parents) with the best possible sporting experience, which will ensure their continued participation and development in softball.

More than 2,700 softball coaches are registered with Softball Australia and their backgrounds and motivations for coaching softball vary widely. The one thing they all share is a genuine passion for and commitment to the game. All you need to do to become a coach at grassroots level is share an interest in sport and a willingness to be involved.

Embarking on some education and training through the accreditation system as a coach is an important first step to ensuring that you are on the right path to becoming a quality coach. Softball Australia has developed a long term coaching pathway in accordance with its player pathway, where coaches can sequentially build their skills from grassroots to elite level via an accredited education program. Many of our coaches have been accredited through this program.

If you are interested in volunteering as a coach with Cruisers Softball Club, you need to register as a Non-playing Official (Coach) via our online registration form. There is no cost to register to coach a team. For more information contact a member of the Cruisers Executive.
