My son is loving cricket this year. In the early days he did it because we thought he should. He now does it because he wants to. He didn’t feel well today but didn’t want to stay at home and miss cricket in the afternoon. What changed days ! Thanks for all your help….It has really helped his confidence.06/03/16 NH
Our son has really enjoyed the mix of skills, competition, and fun that he has experienced at AJ Coaching Academy. It has been the right balance to help him develop skills whilst still having fun and not taking it all too seriously. The recent matches have given him a chance to feel the challenge of competition without excessive pressure which starts to give all the boys match skills and he has thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. We are very pleased with the approach and style of AJ Coaching and look forward to continuing in the coming year.28/03/16 CF
Freddie has absolutely loved being part of your cricket academy and has made so much progress in every aspect of his game. It’s unbelievable that he had never bowled before he started with you, he has improved so much! We wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work, enthusiasm and encouragement, it has made a massive difference. Freddie has particularly enjoyed the challenge of playing some matches. Thank you for organising some matches against other clubs, Freddie thought it was very exciting! We thought it was lovely that you encouraged the parents to be involved and that you were so encouraging towards the younger siblings.27/07/15 TJ
Dear Ali, I thought that you would like to know that as a result of your, and your teams, efforts with Conor over the winter he was invited to join the school cricket squad this season and was awarded Most Improved Player at prize giving -so thank you all so much. Not only has his technique improved but because of your sessions his overall understanding of the game is much better making him more active in the field too -his U11 Roehampton team are about to win the league so he has had a reward there too!02/08/15 CJ
Ben really enjoyed playing this morning, as always, and we are all very proud of him. He is very passionate about cricket, it’s his very favourite activity and he practices a lot at home too. He has been so pleased to be selected to play for your U8 team in matches.
We are all thrilled with his progress and can hardly believe he’s been playing only for 1 year now that he’s just turned seven. We hope for lots more wickets to come and thank you and your other coaches for their inspiration.23/05/15 ER
Cricket with AJ Coaching has been brilliant and very well organised. As well as having such a positive effect on Ravi’s development, it is quite simply, fantastic fun. Whacking 6’s, bowling the batter middle stump, diving to take a great catch – these are all the skills kids with AJ Coaching love doing. The atmosphere is very welcoming and inclusive with no sense of hierarchy. The excitement for the boys when they play matches against other clubs has been wonderful to watch, where they learn how to play as a team, hone in on their skills and grow into great sportsmen. The coaches professionalism, coaching and advice are second to none and Ravi is growing into a confident little player. AJ Coaching’s team camaraderie and motivation rounded it all off brilliantly. It is not just life enhancing, it is life changing. Ravi has made his mind up that he wants to be a professional cricketer.06/11/15 MV
I have to say the week course has had a massive effect, we played a lot of cricket on holiday and Tom’s bowling has really come on, great stuff.25/04/16 SR
Scott and I have been very impressed with the standard of the coaching on a Saturday am. Harry is extremely motivated about learning everything ‘cricket’ and there seems to be a good balance between skills and having fun.06/09/15 HH
