Practical of constraints led coaching

In practical I took part in a cricket session which focused on bowling and they had to use the concept of constraints led coaching. They began the session by putting us into two teams, one team was fielding and the other team were batting in pairs. They told the bowlers to aim for the wickets and keep the ball on target. Each bowler had 6 attempts to get the batter out and after their 6 attempts they had to change bowler so everyone had a chance to bowl. They had to change it after the coaches noticed that the bowlers were improving so they decided to take one wicket out of the stumps so that the bowlers then had 2 wickets to aim at, rather than three. The coaches again changed it by removing another wicket so that we had one wicket to aim at, it made it harder so us to get the batter out and it made us think on our own how to get them out or we had to change are bowling technique. I really enjoyed the session but there was only one team had the chance to bowl and since the session was on bowling in cricket they decided to change the session all together. They separated the area into three different bowling areas and first one was for beginners for the people who never bowled before. The second was for average bowlers who have the confidence to bowl but need more practise to improve and the third one was for professional’s area who play cricket at a high standard. We get to choose which one to go in. I decided to go in the beginners because I wanted to get my technique right before moving up to the average area, when I did move up I started to improve my technique and I also started to hitting the stumps by getting my aim right. I think the coaches did a great session on constraints led coaching because they let us find answers to solve the problem on are own.

  1. Brad, this post is VERY descriptive. Try to consider getting underneath the bonnet of this content. Can you get into the HOW and WHY of your final sentence and perhaps link these aspects to appropriate academic literature and research?
