I have just achieved my level 2 coaching qualification, and the main reason for wanting to coach is that I enjoy seeing the development of players technically, mentally and socially. I have played at rather a decent level and worked with some good coaches along the way.

I am currently working all across Berkshire at various clubs & working as a district coach too.

Chris Johnson

CJ rsz profile

I've coached cricket for over 35 years, having originally qualified under the MCC Coaching Scheme and currently work in several schools as well as at Henley Cricket Club and, of course, for Performance Cricket.

I have tended to concentrate on coaching 6 to 10 year olds and was one of very few cricket coaches providing specialist cricket coaching for this age group back in the 1970's. I believe cricket should at all times be fun and aim to install a love of the game in players which will make them want to play more, practice more and thereby improve their playing ability.

Philosophy: I want to make all activities fun, enjoyable and energetic for all taking part. Following
each of the sessions I'm either Leading or Supporting my goal is for all the participants to have a more positive 
outlook and a better understanding of their game.

Experience: I have been working part time for Performance Cricket since summer 2015
following time spent overseas playing and coaching. Since September 2015 I have been
coaching more regularly helping out with Little Crickets, School Curriculum delivery, After
School Clubs, Performance Cricket Academies and Master Classes. When playing in Australia
I helped as a Support Coach in Fast Bowling to the junior section of the club. 

Ambitions: I would love to achieve the highest level of coaching possible (Level 4). I would love
to be a high performance coach when my playing days are over.

My first cricket coaching job was at the DCF Burton (the old Yorkshire captain) School near Sunningdale in 1962! That was the same year that I captained my school team, Beaumont College, since defunct, against The Oratory at Lord's. 

I played most of my cricket for Teddington CC in the days before the Middlesex league was formed and then for a couple of seasons in the league.

I was Assistant Editor of The Cricketer magazine in 1970-72 and then spent a long time in various postings overseas with British Forces Broadcasting Service, which pretty well put cricket to a stop apart from occasional games in far-flung outposts.
