Every season, the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) advertises internship positions for ACA members looking to develop their career.

The Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA), in partnership with Cricket Australia and state organisations nationally, is offering five, paid sport administration internships for ACA members looking to develop their careers. There are eight advertised opportunities, and from these five will be selected to proceed based on interest and mutual benefit. The internships have been made possible through funds contributed by current and past players and through partnerships with Cricket Australia and the State Associations.

The Program is a terrific example of how players are funding initiatives to benefit fellow members and strengthen the game.

In its seventh year, the 2021/22 program offers a wide variety of diverse opportunities, detailed below.
