a bit more ABOUT ME- Ollie

Passionate about helping others love the challenges and processes.

I love cricket and I want to share my passion for the game with you.

 

I am a Level 2 NZC qualified cricket coach.

I currently play for Parnell Cricket Club as an opening bowler “all-rounder” and have completed my first season as a contracted player with the Auckland ACES.

Having been around the Auckland Premier club cricket scene for the past 10 years I've gained loads of playing experience in club cricket with Cornwall, Papatoetoe and now the mighty Parnell.

 

I've also played at club level in England and have been involved with County Second Elevens, Auckland A and Northern Districts A teams.

 

Over recent years I've developed a passion for helping others through coaching.

 

For me, the best thing about coaching is seeing players grow, not just with the shots they play or the deliveries they bowl, but seeing them develop as all-round people. "There is nothing quite like developing resilience, positivity and a hard work ethic in young people".

My coaching philosophy is simple. I combine a no nonsense, open and approachable style with a 'keep it technically simple' mantra. In addition, given I'm still playing, I'm able to add a healthy dose of practical, usable tips that get results.

 

So, whether you're a year 5 player just starting hardball, or a Premier cricketer looking for a fresh approach to developing your game I'm keen to help.
