Wellington School of Cricket is excited to announce that former Wellington Firebirds and Central Stags pace bowler Andrew Lamb will be conducting an intensive 4 days pace bowling clinic at Westpac Centre.
The program will run on the 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th May 2019 from 9.30 – 11am.
Aspiring speedsters will have the opportunity to learn from one of the finest pace bowling coaches. Players will work with Andrew in groups (limited to a maximum off 8) in four 90-minute sessions.
This session will be exploring each action to ensure it is safe, in alignment and the most efficient to bowl fast, accurately and get the most out of every delivery. Each player will be videoed with the bowlers being able to see their action and critiqued to be able to amend any inconsistencies. We will explore the principles of warm up and cool down. Bowlers will also be given efficiency exercises to take home and continue with.
In session 2 we will begin to understand the notion of swinging the ball in both directions and understand the dynamics of making the ball swing. We will introduce the notion of reverse swing and how to make it work. We will also begin to understand goal setting and how to make it work for each individual for each session and season.
Here the bowlers will become more accomplished and knowledgeable as fast bowlers as we now begin to develop variations to extend our bowling vocabulary. These will include slower balls, Yorkers and bouncers. We will also discuss and develop an understanding of when to use them and how to set the field for those balls.
Session 4 will be a focus on fitness, diet and nutrition. We will undertake the fitness tests needed to determine where we are as a bowler and where we should be. All bowlers will leave the session with a diet plan and fitness regime to get them ready for the season ahead.
Over the course of the clinic each bowler will further their knowledge to become a confident, knowledgeable and successful fast bowler. The tools they will leave the clinic with will enable them to bowl accurately, set fields to different situations and balls they wish to bowl consistently, and use variations of speed and length to gain the advantage in every game they play.
The fee for the program is $260 and please note that places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
