Pre-season: message from the coaching team

August 22, 2011 No Comments

Welcome to the 2011/12 cricket season which is set to be another great season.

We are delighted to announce that Nathan Harris has been appointed as an Assistant coach to provide coaching support throughout the year. Nathan will be fantastic in this role with his cricket knowledge, enthusiasm, skill and professionalism.

Pre-season training has already started with indoor nets up and running.  This year we have put together a ‘Pre-season Training Calendar‘ outlining the training /coaching schedule and key events leading up to the start of the season.

Please see calendar for key dates for training.

  • Indoor =  variety dates and times.
  • Outdoor  = Sunday morning starting 4th September (10.30am) until start of season, & midweek Outdoor starting Thursday 8th September — check calendar carefully as some dates do vary based on whether indoor or outdoor training.

We are looking to further build on the foundations set last year by again developing a clear club mission and expectations for training, game day and what it takes to be successful. We will again be organising player meetings to review last year’s performance against the mission statement and expectations, review playing guidelines, and importantly develop new goals and expectations.  Please see the dates listed for these sessions in September where we would expect all to attend.

A key focus during pre-season will be working on fitness for cricket. We will be aiming to mix this up to make it as enjoyable as possible, whilst getting the maximum benefit. Pre-season training is also the perfect time to work on your technique and skills — we will be focusing on helping to iron out any issues/ bad habits and develop further skills during this time.

We are also looking to get Leon back onboard again this year with his professionalism, support and guidance to get the most out of yourself and the club.

Longmuir Shield bowling legend, Tony DeLutis, has also kindly volunteered some of his time and expertise to work with the bowlers at various stages throughout the season. This is a great result for the club.

As a club, we must use the preseason time to get ourselves into the best possible position to have a successful year and be better prepared than our opposition. This is where it all begins and the more you put in now the better the outcome at the end.
