Keep Calm and Smash It

England and Surrey cricketer Kevin Pietersen has teamed up with PitchVision Academy to release an online coaching course to inspire a new generation of cricket players to improve their batting.

What is it?

Keep Calm and Smash It includes tutorials covering some of Pietersen's famous moves and techniques.

Each course is divided into manageable chapters, which include tutorial videos, online assessments, worksheets and space to store your own chapter notes. The final chapter also includes FAQs and a video and audio archive that can be downloaded on to portable devices for coaching on the go.

"I felt it was time I passed on my experiences and techniques," Pietersen says. "I'm at the stage in my career where I'm looking to give something back to the game. Hopefully we will find individuals with rare talent and fulfil their dreams."

What else?

If you need help with something other than batting, PitchVision Academy offers a range of coaching materials about different aspects of the game, each delivered by a professional. Want to make the best of cricket training? Try amygaunt's unit plan for a step-by-step guide.
