Over the years, I have heard the following types of comments from parents, coaches and players on a daily basis…
“My child performs well in practice but can’t carry that into match situations.”
“Net training is poorly structured and my child seldomly faces more than a few balls. He is thinking of giving up the game.”
“I coach my team and I struggle to keep them focused and engaged.”
“My child gets too nervous when heading out to bat and can’t perform.”
“He is upset for days after a poor match performance. How can I help him to cope with the occasional set back?”
As a coach, I have always been passionate about providing the best possible coaching experience for players that effectively bridges the gap between the training and match environment. Over time my innovation has evolved into exercises that I believe provide the solution to these common problems and I have now shaped these into what I call the “X-Factor Series”. These high-intensity, stimulating group training sessions challenge every player involved to develop the key ingredients for becoming a top player. By incorporating these net games into my coaching programmes, I have seen players and teams flourish in high pressure match situations.
Why is the X-Factor Series the ultimate cricket coaching experience for players and teams?
- Prepares players for the highs and lows of real match situations.
- Builds self belief and confidence that players can carry through to game day and everyday life.
- Accelerates tactical understanding and decision making skills.
- These exercises provide a high-energy, intensive cricket training experience that engages all players involved.
- Enables players to develop emotional intelligence and learn how to cope with nerves, failure or set backs.
- Builds team culture and cohesion. Your team/group will leave each session inspired and fired up for the next training session.
- Unique game simulation ideas that have been proven to translate into results in the middle by creating a competitive, purposeful training experience.
- Bridges the gap between training and match performance
