Coaches sought for PCYC kids

Pilbara News - - Sports - Alicia Per­era

Ex­mouth PCYC is call­ing for more coaches to be able to run their chil­dren’s cricket ses­sions this month.

The ser­vice wants to run cricket games for chil­dren aged five-17 over eight weeks in term one, as they have been do­ing for the past few years.

How­ever, Ex­mouth PCYC co­or­di­na­tor Lau­ren Ram­pling said they needed more coaches to do so af­ter some of the reg­u­lar helpers left town and one of the re­main­ing ones was lim­ited by a fly-in, fly-out sched­ule.

“We’re al­ways look­ing for more coaches, and I’m hop­ing we can get some high school kids coach­ing the younger kids as that works re­ally well for both the coaches and the young peo­ple re­ceiv­ing sup­port form them,” she said.

“We have only got a cou­ple of coaches at the mo­ment. If we don’t get any­more we won’t be run­ning it.”

She said they were look­ing for “some­one who en­joys cricket, some­one who has a sense of hu­mour, and some­one who is in­clu­sive and pas­sion­ate and wants to share the skills they’ve got”.

Ms Ram­pling said cricket was al­ways a pop­u­lar sport with the chil­dren. “We usu­ally have about 80 chil­dren play­ing,” she said.

“The WA Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion are quite amazed at the num­bers we get.”

The PCYC cricket sea­son will run ev­ery week start­ing from Fe­bru­ary 14 on Talan­jee and Kookoboro ovals.
