Biloela Junior Coaching Clinic
CRICKET: Biloela juniors have the ideal opportunity to meet and train with former Australian and Queensland fast bowler Geoff Dymock OAM next week.
Dymock will be in Biloela on January 19 and will be conducting a coaching clinic at Magavalia Oval on Valentine Plains Road starting at 9am.
Biloela Junior Cricket club president Darren Hebbard said it would be a great chance for any junior cricketer in the region to come and learn from the former Australian speedster.
"Not many chances you get to meet an Australian player and the juniors who come to it will be exposed to some higher level coaching,” Hebbard said.
"The focus will be on the basics of bowling, batting and fielding and the core cricket skills to help the juniors with their game.”
The coaching clinic will be suitable for all players from six to 16 and all skill levels catered for.
The skills taught in this program were also carefully chosen by former cricket legend Doug Walters and is a great opportunity for the young players to learn correct techniques when playing.
The session will include batting against spin bowling, how to face full and short-pitched deliveries and bowling to prevent injuries.
Dymock played 21 test matches for Australia taking 78 wickets at an average of 27.12 each and 15 One Day Internationals between 1974 and 1980 taking 15 wickets.
He captained the Queensland cricket team for nine matches between 1980 and 1982 and was its fast bowler and then coach.
The cost is $30 per attendee and can be paid on the day.
Biloela Junior Cricket starts again on February 8 at 5.30pm.
