It’s no secret that women’s cricket in the Cook Islands is growing larger and larger.

This season 20 teams on Rarotonga alone registered into the Edgewater women’s competitions. Cook Islands Cricket’s general manager Alister Stevic believes that women’s cricket participation numbers has room to grow yet, “women are loving cricket, it is no secret that they have taken to the game with a natural ability and a real passion that has seen interest in traveling internationally to compete against international teams rise” said Stevic.

For that reason and to support the overwhelming interest from both men and women to learn more and improve their game, Cook Islands Cricket has been delivering educational courses to support that growth.

Within the last two weeks CI Cricket have delivered an umpires course and a scorers course with a women’s only coaching course scheduled for this Wednesday, 5pm at Nikao field or Princess Anne hall if raining. The course is a great opportunity to learn some exceptionally valuable ways to improve players and team’s technique and performances. CI Crickets expectation is for each team to send at least three female cricketers. For more information or to register you can contact CI Cricket on 20 744.
