BCA President Pranav Amin had taken an initiative to introduce the newly appointed Director for Cricket and Coach at BCA Dav Watmore along with 34 coaches of various age groups and initiate an interaction amongst them on various topics.
During this conversation Dav Watmore emphasised on the importance of the players making the coach successful and not the other way around. He also emphasised the importance of the Coach showing Care for players.
During the chat, he discussed on various subjects elaborately with the coaches. He said to discuss and share views on the activities coaches could indulge in with their teams during the lock down periods. He suggested training programs that will keep boys in top physical and mental shape.
He discussed the importance of all coaches on the same page in terms of sharing his vision and the processes for coaches to imbibe, understand and implement.
He also communicated with the coaches on a “Special pool of players” in each age group, with an eye on the future. He also professed the importance of feed back from the coaches on the learnings and how each coach plans to raise the bar for his team in the ensuing season. He also communicated with the coaches on the challenges they may have faced earlier, and in respect of the same guidance/inputs on how they address these issues.
He discussed the values of caring for all the players and shedding individual egos in the pursuit of raising the bar of performance.
The follow up process would be a direct communication by each coach with Dav Watmore on the challenges and the areas to work on in the lock down period.
