Pro Coach are proud to bring our renowned Master Class sessions back in a small group environment this summer! Based at the prestigious Pudsey Congs Cricket Club, our coaches look forward to helping local cricketers improve their all-round game, whilst strictly following the government and ECB guidelines.
Over the two-day course players will be challenged and tested with the bat when facing spin and fast bowling. Using modern drills every player will be given the chance to build their technique, game plans and confidence against every type of bowler.
Using carefully designed scenarios to test new skills the batsmen will be able to find their own methods of achieving success by scoring runs in all types of match situation.
Bowlers will have the opportunity to have their bowling actions analysed and if required, corrected with the aid of video analysis and shown drills which are proven to help all types of bowling actions. Fast bowlers will be encouraged to bowl fast and bowl with improved skills such as moving the ball with swing and seam movement. Whilst spinners will be encouraged to spin the ball more than ever before with increased accuracy and plans.
We hope to help players from around the county still achieve great things whenever cricket can return fully.
