Pace Like Fire
The Fast-Bowling Solution for Schools
PaceLab is delighted to introduce the Pace Like Fire Fast Bowling Solution for Schools.
Why the need for specialised fast bowling coaching in schools?
Despite being a crucial aspect of cricket, fast bowling is often undertrained in schools due to a lack of specialism and understanding. Many school coaches do not possess the knowledge and expertise to properly train young bowlers at the critical stages of their fast-bowling development. It is not their fault, as fast bowling is a highly specialised area that requires years of experience and training. However, through years of developing his fast-bowling knowledge in private schools, Steffan Jones has become an expert in this field. He is well-equipped to support school cricket programmes by providing young bowlers with the training and resources they need to succeed.
Other issues that are seen in cricket programmes at schools
We understand there are several challenges associated with training fast bowlers in schools. These include a lack of access to specialised equipment, limited time with athletes due to academic pressures, and competing demands from other sports. Additionally, high costs associated with hiring external coaches, facilities issues, and a lack of focus in training sessions can all impede progress. Furthermore, many young players face pressure from academies and pathways, which can lead to too much tinkering from different coaches and a lack of consistency in training.
