All GAW coaches are handpicked for their passion for the game, coaching abilities, knowledge and love for children. They all have CSA (Cricket South Africa) and some even have SAICF (South Africa Indoor Cricket Federation) qualifications. The coaches attend workshops where they are taught the essential cricket skills and teaching principles that we believe make for qualified coaches.
