The eight coaches – two of whom are based in Alice Springs with six in Darwin – will become the engine room of NT Cricket’s new Statewide Super Pathways Program, focused on developing players, coaches and umpires across the Territory. The eight coaches are:
• Adrian Gallagher, Palmerston Cricket Club
• Amber Ashton, West Cricket Club
• Chris McCormick, Waratah Cricket Club
• Darren Treumer, Tracy Village Cricket Club
• James Kennedy, Federal Cricket Club
• Marc Calkin, PINT Cricket Club
• Robert Vandermeulen, Palmerston Cricket Club
• Udara Weerasinghe, Nightcliff Cricket Club
Under the stewardship of Head of Pathways, Neale Price, the coaches will implement and drive NT Cricket’s new #TerritoryTough philosophy.
#TerritoryTough represents the unique and innovative approach our Northern Territory players, coaches and umpires will approach the game, centred around the boundless opportunities and advantages that exist in the Territory.
Under the mantra #TerritoryTough, we will unite and inspire our community by:
• Delivering on our promise
• Offering no excuses
• Being loud, proud and respectful
• Drawing upon the skills and knowledge within our community
• Educating and upskilling
• Being nimble and agile
• Capitalising on our unique ability to play year-round across the Territory
• Training and preparing with a short format focus
The Territory has proven time and time again that its community has the expertise, resources and resilience to succeed, epitomised in cricket by Territory players such as D’Arcy Short, Kane Richardson, Tabatha Saville, Jake Weatherald, Tom Andrews and Luke Robins starring on the international and national stage.
We punch above our weight and we’ll continue to strive towards producing the most elite talent per capita across Australian Cricket.
We’re #TerritoryTough in the North and that’s how we’ll play our cricket.
