‘One to One’ Coaching
The ‘One to One’ coaching programme takes place each winter on a Monday evening from October until March at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, from 6-9pm.
The programme enables players from eight years old to be coached in a personal environment by experienced and expert Somerset coaches who are qualified to a high level and able to work on all aspects of a player’s game.
Players will receive personal feedback from the coach to enable them to continue to develop techniques and skills outside of the programme. Information about our team of one to one coaches from this winter can be found below.
‘One to one’ sessions cost £38 per session. Groups of 2, 3 or 4 players could enjoy a session for £45.
Our ‘one to one’ sessions for this winter are currently fully booked. If you would like to be added to our cancellations list or for more information please email email@example.com or call 01823 352266.
