Coaches will be able to pick up tips from some of the best in the business at a series of upcoming workshops.
The coach development workshops will all be held at Wycliffe College from 7pm-9pm and kick off on December 4 with a fielding double-header. Former Glos captain and current Surrey fielding coach Chris Taylor will run a masterclass full of tips techniques and innovative practice ideas. At the same event coaches can learn more about the art of coaching wicketkeeping from Glos assistant 2nd XI and Academy coach Steve Cashmore (pictured).
The following Tuesday (December 11) Gloucestershire fast bowling coach Mark Thorburn will lead a session which offers an insight into some of the common issues in young fast bowlers and how to develop the key basics found in all the great fast bowlers.
On Tuesday January 15 former England spinner Richard Dawson will bring his simple philosophy of “get the basics right and look to spin it” to life with a workshop delving into the art of spin bowling.
The final event in the series sees former Gloucestershire batsman Tim Hancock – who won seven one day trophies with the county at the turn of the century – run a workshop on developing the basics of batting.
Each workshop runs from 7pm-9pm and costs £10.
Tim said: “It is fantastic to be able to offer an opportunity for our coaches in Gloucestershire to learn from some of the best coaches in their field.
“Whether you are helping out at a club or coaching in our performance pathway continuing to develop your knowledge is crucial for any coach and we welcome people of all experience levels.
“Good coaching underpins everything we do from growing the number of people playing at grass roots level to developing future professionals. I hope that these events will prove really useful and give coaches a load of new ideas to put into practice in their pre-season training.”
