The purpose of the Coaching Pathway is to provide the right courses and qualifications for coaches working in every unique environment in Irish cricket. Ultimately, our aim is to help players love the game of cricket and achieve their potential within the game.

The Coaching Pathway recognizes that players have different needs. For the first time, it specifically recognizes the difference between coaching children and coaching young people and adults

Umpire Ranking

The introduction of the Umpire Ranking was aimed at allowing the best and most respected umpires to stand in the sport's biggest games; to improve the overall standard of umpiring at national and international level representing Nepal; and to establish a benchmark to which future umpires could aspire.
School Cricket

Cricket has become the most beloved game for the students in the present era. School cricket plays a vibrant role within the CAN’s player pathway.  In many cases, a primary school “School Hunt” session or block or sessions may be the first opportunity that a young person gets to experience participating in cricket. 

The aim of Cricket Association of Nepal is to support the delivering coaches to make “School Hunt” interesting, safe and fun – while also ensuring maximum participation for each young person within the session.  Hopefully, this session or block of sessions will encourage young players to want to try cricket at their local Club. 

Cricket Association of Nepal aspire to work with both private and public school to promote the game.

Cricket Association of Nepal is requesting Ministry of Education to include Cricket on Curriculum development – ensuring that this provides not only for cricket development but also for students’ more general physical education, fitness and health needs
National School Competitions

Each school year, CAN runs a series of National School Competitions.  The aims of the competitions are simple: to get more school pupils interested in cricket, to get more school pupils participating in cricket, to provide a competitive option for schools and ultimately to find the National Champion in each competition.  The following competitions run on an annual basis, as of the 2015/2016.

Girls & Women’s Cricket

Women's cricket is one of the fastest growing sports in Nepal with hundreds of girls taking up junior cricket each year. In Nepal the sport is inclusive and widespread. CAN delivers development opportunities to over 20,000 girls in our introductory programme by the end of 2016. Subsequently, we are closely working with our clubs and volunteers to enable them to progress players to the hard ball game. We also aspire to start Women’s National League within 2016.

Women's cricket is a tremendous force for social transformation and its presence in the Nepal is most heartening. As promoters and developers of the game, to witness the skill and passion with which girls are playing cricket reveals to us the fundamental appeal of this great sport with great Spirit. It is being played for the pure joy it brings in terms of athleticism, team-spirit and personal expression.

The Nepal national women's cricket team is the team that represents the country of Nepal in international women's cricket. They made their international debut in the ACC Women's Tournament in Malaysia in July 2007. Nepal has been participating in various international tournaments since then. Nepal's current captain is Rubina Chettri, coach is Shyam Sun Jung Thapa and manager is Sanjaya Raj Singh.

Women's cricket is thriving and the national team (made up of top athletes from other sports) did very well to reach the final of the 2007 ACC Women's Tournament. Nepal won the 2008 ACC Under-19 Women's Championship and defended its title in 2010. Also Nepal holds the title of ACC Under-19 Women's Championship in 2012 held in Kuwait as well.

In the ACC Women Twenty20 in Malaysia in 2009, Singapore needed two runs off the last over for victory with five wickets intact. Rubina Chhetri was given the 'hopeless' over but she did a miracle by taking five wickets in five balls as the match ended in a draw as she threw a wide. Nepal won the match in bowl-out. With the rare incident, Rubina also became the first Nepalese cricketer, man or woman, to take a hat-trick.
