Product Overview

"Ian Pont fizzes with enthusiasm and missionary zeal when he talks about coaching. He is a perpetual stream of ideas; he wants to impart what he knows. Pont's first book on fast bowling was riveting because it put into plain English what can be a complicated subject. This book might have even wider appeal because he advises the coaches how to coach. Technically sound, it goes much further into the realms of what young people need in order to learn the game, and Pont never forgets that, above all, cricket should be fun." Stephen Brenkley, The Independent

"There are plenty of books for coaches at the elite level, coaches of adults and coaches of juniors. This book helps all coaches, and it is hard to imagine any who will not benefit from consulting it. It also deals with that often-overlooked element in young players' development: parents. They are more than just unpaid taxi drivers, and it is refreshing to see their vital role acknowledged." Ralph Dellor, former Chairman of England and Wales Cricket Board Coaches Association Broadcaster and Author of Cricket: Steps to Success

"A coach has to perform the role of motivator, counsellor and communicator. This book helps all coaches at all levels to do this effectively so players have the best possible chance to realise their potential." Roger Newman, Director of Cricket, Devon CCC

Coaching Youth Cricket serves as a guide for those just starting out in coaching young cricketers as well as seasoned coaches.
