This newly created coaching role will oversee the coaching and development of the club’s senior women’s and junior girls’ teams with a focus on inclusion, participation and development in line with the club’s strategic plan and objectives.

  • Coach of the KHCC 1st XI Senior Female Team.
  • Lead Coach of the KHCC Junior Female Team(s) – with option to bring in assistant coaches as 
    necessary, depending on squad numbers
  • Responsibility for overseeing the entire female training program for Season 2024/25, including 
    pre-season.
  • Develop a cricket programme that will improve player skills and create an inclusive and fun 
    environment for all ages and abilities.
  • Co-ordination of school/community engagement e.g. Come and Try Days
  • Take a leading role in all training sessions and game days.
  • Educate players in all aspects of cricket on and off the field.
  • Liaise closely with the KHCC Committee and Head Coach to align with our club strategy, culture and 
    objectives

Key Selection Criteria

  • Good communication skills with different age groups and members of the club to promote a supportive environment centred on inclusivity and transparency.
  • Excellent organisation, planning & time management skills.
  • A passion for the game of cricket.
  • An enthusiasm for developing individuals, as well as building successful teams.

Our KHCC 1st XI Women’s team compete strongly in the EGWC Senior A Grade competition, having finished season 2023/24 as grand finalists following many consecutive years of finals appearances. Furthermore the club has a junior girls team made up of 10-15 year old cricketers competing weekly in the Junior section of the EGWC, of whom we intend to invest further in and develop through to senior cricket.  
We are proud to share that so far KHCC’s female cricket program has produced three cricketers to reach regular selection in the Senior 1st XI Premier Women’s Team at Box Hill Cricket Club, with two of these players going on to achieve state honours by representing Victoria at the underage level.  
As such, this is an excellent opportunity to make a lasting impact by driving an already strong female cricket programme to the next level of growth and success.  
Koonung Heights Cricket Club are open minded to considering applications from both playing and non-playing coaches – remuneration will be discussed with suitable candidates.
