How to motivate young cricketers

If you are a coach, you need to bring more and more freshers in the cricket field. You may wonder thinking about some of the young cricketers who seem to sail by the ship without proper equipment.

So, till the proper motivation is transplanted, you can’t work out a way of keeping your whole team of players hungry to get success and inspire them to put in hard work for the success.

People play cricket primarily for fun. Once you know that this is the biggest motivating factor for the players, you are at the big advantage. So the primary tricks is to get your players engaged in exciting things of the match.

Secondly, fix varieties with lots of other activities.

Thirdly, keep everyone engaged and moving. Avoid having them long waiting for their own turn.

Fourthly, not all training needs to be disciplined and drilled. So never afraid of continuing the game for some time more.

The tricky part is knowing how far to go with each individual. That’s where coaching becomes an art rather than a science, but once you are looking to do this, opportunities arise all the time:

For the coach that is the key to impetus. It’s not something you can carry by shouting at someone, or even something you can coerce players into. Motivation is giving players enough responsibility so they do it themselves.

Once you know a player’s motivation you can start feeding it.
