How can one man coach a whole club?
This question is one that many a coach has been confronted with over the years. You've just been offered a senior coaching role at a new club. With visions of one-to-one discussions with batters, technical drills for bowlers, ongoing assessments and fitness development programs, your creative brain is firing.
Soon after, reality hits.
You’re coaching all four teams. They all train during the same two hour session once a week. Many will come and go at different times, and of course they all have a world of different issues they want to work on.
Oh, and you're on your own.
No assistant, no helpers, and no parents who you used to call upon when you were working with the juniors.
Don’t despair, there are still a few ways for you to make your sessions productive as long as you and your players can work to some simple guidelines.
