Our Unique and ground breaking coaching program is built around the core values with which our mentor MS Dhoni lives and plays by; INTEGRITY, TEAMWORK, ENJOYMENT, PROFESSIONALISM, & ADAPTIBILITY. I am very confident about the fact that a systematic learning program will help teach the basics at a young age. With the right basics in place, a child can learn and adapt more easily and successfully to succeed in the different formats of modern cricket,” said Mihir Diwakar.
Diwakar elaborated that the training methodology is embedded with four driving factors in the way they coach, practice and play cricket.
*Quality over Quantity: Encourage players to practice their match day rituals and routines as part of their regular practice and Training
* Effective Technique instead of perfect Technique: Players learn how to achieve out comes in competitive situations and different conditions
* Adaptability over Repetition: Players learn to think on their feet and adapt to changing conditions and match situations
* Player Ownership over Coach Management: Players learn to solve problems and show leadership and take ownership of their own preparation, thinking and performance analysis
