THE TEAM



At Steve Waugh Cricket, we have one of the most respected cricketers of all time driving our business – with his philosophy and values still inspiring cricketers today.

Our coaching team believes that communicating and imparting Steve’s philosophy and values is important to the future of the game.

Our approach is about delivering a fun learning experience, helping cricketers improve their skills and their game in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere.

We firmly believe that “over-coaching” kids is one of the worst things a coach can do; instead, we want to let them be themselves, and enjoy their participation in the game.

To achieve this, we take the time to look at each player and evaluate their potential and skill levels, and then work from there.
