Female coaches for Raro

Thursday 15 April 2010 | Published in Regional


Another first for women’s cricket took place last Monday when nine female cricketers qualified as New Zealand Cricket coaches.

On the back of the successful first women’s Rarotonga club cricket season earlier in the year the development of female’s cricket is gaining quick momentum.

Cook Islands Cricket general manager Alister Stevic said he was impressed with the wide variety of attendees, the passion shown and at the quick pace at which they learnt new skills.

“I was extremely impressed at how quickly everyone understood the key points, especially considering the short time they have been playing cricket,” Stevic said.

With the next cricket season fast approaching some clubs will now have the distinct advantage of having qualified coaches to assist in the development of junior through senior players.

Cook Islands Cricket would like to congratulate Lotu Vea (Avatiu-Nikao CC), Sabina Janneck (Arorangi CC), Trainee Tinorei, Apii Tangata, Siniva Marsters (Matavera CC), Katie Rodgers (Ministry of Education), Rochelle Owen-Cooper (Titikavaka College), Kelly Pick and Teata Ateriano (Mauke School).
