Coach Tucker to attend fast bowling course
Bermuda under-15 coach Lorenzo Tucker is to attend the West Indies Cricket Board’s fast bowling workshop in Barbados.
The seminar is run by biomechanist Dr Paul Hurrion, West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson and Sagicor HPC Bowling Coach and West Indies U19 Head Coach, Roddy Estwick.
The two-day workshop addresses biomechanical principles, assessing actions, video analysis, understanding swing and fitness for bowling.
National coach David Moore said: “I am very pleased that Lorenzo Tucker has accepted the opportunity to attend the fast bowling coaches workshop at the Sagicor High Performance Centre in Barbados.
“Lorenzo’s experience is ideally suited to undertaking this seminar and disseminating the information throughout the coaching community of Bermuda.
“He has the technical and biomechanical understanding of fast bowling as well as the high level technology skills to be able to analyse a fast bowler’s performance and communicate feedback to each player.
“I look forward to working closely with him on his return to video and analyse our young fast bowlers and to develop programmes that will enhance their performance.”
President Reginald Pearman said: “The BCB prioritises the education and development of our coaches and we are confident that Lorenzo will be able to assist and upskill other local coaches locally in addition to putting his new knowledge to good use.”
