U15A boys enjoyed a cricket masterclass with Steve Dent today, learning about mental toughness, confidence and how to bowl whilst being 'sledged' by your friends!
Bowlers had to aim at six cones to see if any could be hit - which is far more difficult when being verbally distracted. The boys came close but none were hit, proving how off-putting sledging is.
It was then the turn of Mr Jackson (Head of Hockey) and Mr Pandya (Head of Cricket) to be sledged by the students. One did manage to hit the cones on his third attempt, however it may be best not to divulge which coach won!
Mr Dent also ran sessions with the 1st X1 and the sports scholars.
