Marica Vua wants to be the first woman cricket coach.

Originally from Galoa Village in Serua, Vua attended the Cricket Fiji facilitated Cricket Council (ICC) this week held at the Tanoa International Hotel Nadi.

The tour training programme is the first ICC coach tutor training for East Asia Pacific (EAP) Region­al members, it starting at 3pm; at Tanoa International Hotel Nadi.

National rep Vua has been part of the sport since she was attending Lomary Secondary School 2014.

“I started off as a bowler, I am an all-rounder now,” she said.

“This programme is important to me especially the different aspects of coaching, I want to be the first female coach as there’s no female coach,” she said.

“There are always male coaches around, so my objective from this course is trying to get to that level. Not just that, but to coach my club and the national team.

ICC Development (East Asia Pacific) Toby Cohen said: “The global framework aims to support EAP countries develop their own trained workforce; those equipped and accredited to deliver relevant courses and accredit participants,”

The three days training were from Tuesday to Thursday.

This programme is part of the ICC Training and Education Framework.

The training was conducted by three ICC master educators from ICC, Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket.

“All tutors who successfully com­plete the training program we will be recognised as ICC Tutors and will be ready to deliver the ICC Level 1 Coaching Course in their own country,” he added,

The 24 tutors that attended train­ing are representatives from seven countries namely Japan, Indone­sia, Philippines, South Korea, Sa­moa, Papua New Guinea and Fiji Cricket Associations.
