This week marks the first time that Cricket Australia will be conducting coaching for ICC Level 2 and Level 3 accreditation in USA.   Two special coaching courses will be conducted in Fort Lauderdale by Cricket Coaches Australia.

The Cricket Australia Level 2 Representative coaching program runs from August 22nd to August 24th.  The residential portion of the Level 3 High Performance coaching program will be conducted between August 25th and 30th. 

“These coach education courses provide a great opportunity for USA coaches to deepen their coaching knowledge and become accredited by one of the world leaders in coach education. It also demonstrates USACA’s continued commitment to providing its stakeholders with development opportunities,” Darren Beazley, CEO of USACA, commented at the time of the announcement. 

The latest programs signal a new direction for USACA.  USA's coach education was previously aligned with West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) coaching programs and levels.   Wendell Coppin conducted WICB Level 2 coaching certification in California in October 2011. 

Wendell Coppin was also involved with WICB Level 1 clinics that were conducted in 2009 (New Jersey), 2011 (Maryland) and 2012 (Texas). 

For the Cricket Australia Level 2 program, the full course fee of $500 AUD (roughly $450 USD), travel to/from the venue, accommodation and other costs are the responsibility of the attendee.   

For Level 3 High Performance program,  the six day residential course is the beginning of an extensive 12-month long program.  The cost of the Level 3 coaching program is $5000 AUD and that price includes accommodation for the residential portion, according to the USACA release.  

It appears that the high cost of the Level 3 program has not been a deterrent for applicants as the cricketing eco-system continues to evolve in USA.   "Interest from coaches all across the country has been strong," Beazley noted in his monthly "Message from the CEO."
