Coaching Bio

I have played Cricket for nearly 15 years for clubs in India, Hong Kong, Australia and UAE. I am a middle order batsmen and off spin bowler. I have a passion to share my cricket experiences and pass on my knowledge to young budding cricketers and attract families to get involved in social cricket.

In Term 2, I am involved in coaching indoor cricket team at primary and intermediate level. I have also developed a special learning programme for kids with Mancel College, Brisbane and observed following positive outcomes. 1. Enhanced hand-eye co-ordination through bowling and batting strokes for all the participants. 2. Use of bowling machines to identify the gaps of hand-eye co-ordination in each individual student. 3. Achievement of basic sports skills and its use to create fun environment to overcome language disorder barriers in sports.

Reviews

Arun - 07-08-2022

Personalised and professional is what I would describe Nitin’s coaching. Ayush has benefited immensely after they started training. Working on improving technique along with imparting confidence is the best attribute during each sessions. Looking forward to see my son learn and develop as a sportsman.

Nitin is an excellent coach. He coaches my 12 year old son. He is very patient and a great comunicator.

Satya - 03-02-2022

Nitin is coaching my 8 years old Son for over few months. He is very friendly and patient. I can see great progress in my Son's overall Cricketing skills (batting, bowling an fielding). The program which he planned for my Son is greatly benefiting him and I can see his skills improving every month. He is not done after Coaching session is complete, he msgs me mid week to check whether my Son is practicing . He takes really good care of his students.

As part of the recent session, Nitin came up with a 10 week coaching plan for my son. The plan is very detailed and meticulously done. I am hoping for my son to hone his cricketing skills by the end of the 10 weeks cycle.
