Summer Hill Cricket Club Coach the Coach Clinic

From Glenn - the club coach

I was impressed with Geoff's work, his routines, but particularly by his attitude and acceptance of the  several little hints and feedback I gave him, to make it relevant to the group and the clubs methodologies, which he professionally incorporated into his communications.

He likes working with our club he told me, cos we give him good direction and feedback and I suspect the attention and respect he thoroughly deserves.

My role now is to go about reinforcing the things he said. We should monitor the performances of the player group to see if Sunday makes an immediate difference.

From Deb - a girls coach

Firstly I thought the day was fantastic. To the point my head is spinning. I think half of the information that we were shown has fallen out. I would suggest two things:

  • Getting coaches to take notes describing the basics of each exercise so they have something to refer to. For me the stuff about using the back foot was invaluable however due to the other stuff  it has become muddled in my head
  • Allow participants to take a quick video of the exercise or photo at least.

I used 6 or 7 things at out training session on Tuesday already.
