Teesra Talks — occasional thoughts on cricket coaching

www.theteesra.com
I qualified as a cricket coach in 2009, but really started to coach seriously in 2014, working mostly with children (primary school age, and younger). My blog, theteesra.com, is a strong reflective discipline to maintain, but it can take time to pull together a post…4 years (and counting) in one extreme case. I tweet @theteesra, but the format doesn’t really encourage reflection. So, Teesra Talks will be more like an audio diary, where I can reflect on coaching issues more spontaneously than in a blog post, but in a little more depth than on Twitter. Please, do join the conversation.
