Youth Cricket Development - Cricket Discovery (6-9 years)
By David Virgo, PitchVision Academy Youth Development Coach
Do you want your kids to have the edge over their sporting peers?
Through my experiences I know that if you want to create better cricketers you need to push the boundaries of the traditional approach to youth cricketer's development and coaching.
This course for teachers, coaches and parents of 6-9 year does exactly that: guiding you through the exact tips, tricks and methods I have used to develop young players in my own cricket clubs.
In particular the course is unique because it is:
Unspecific. As children age, the complex movements needed for skill adaption become increasingly difficult to learn. The only way to ensure new skills can be added and or mastered in a cricketer is if they have been exposed to that movement previously in their life. This model addresses that by focusing on introducing non-specific movements to the nervous system possible so it can be utilised at a later date: In other words, creating the muscle memory to become an athlete.
Complete. Alongside the basics of cricket skills, traditionally ignored topics such as nutrition, flexibility and muscle balance as well as an emotional and mental intelligence are included in the program. Correct movement practices are also part of the program along with rhythm, balance, spatial awareness, kinaesthetic differentiation and reaction to audio and visual cues. This means the coordination 'window of opportunity' is captured before it's too late.
Structured. The Complete Cricket Youth Development Program consists of four distinct levels separated primarily by age. This course, Level 1, is about the discovery of movements (general and cricket-specific) while athletically and mentally stimulating the players.
If you want to create well rounded, athletic young players with a passion for cricket, this course will give you the tools.

Chapter 1 - Introduction
In this chapter we learn why the traditional way of developing 6-9 year old players for cricket is flawed and one dimensional.
The traditional method of coaching young cricketers creates one-dimensional results based players. However, you can master the mental and technical skills of the game more easily with the Developmental method outlined in this introduction.
