The ACA works closely with state associations to deliver valuable personal and professional skill development workshops to players throughout their playing career.
Each player is encouraged to consider their future beyond cricket by working with their PDM on an annual Individual Development Plan (IDP). The IDP guides a player through a process to identify their priority for development. A player will assess their level of Self Awareness, Industry Exploration, Learning (education), Work Experience and Networking to determine their focus of development through the season.
The ACA provides ongoing support for players as they transition out of cricket into life outside of sport. Players work with the Transition Manager to create an individual plan to help support them outside of the elite environment. The Players can access this service for 3 years post contract State contract or one-year post W/BBL.
