Player Mentorship

We Have A Choice Of 4 Programmes Especially For You

Mentorship Program

Cricket Mentor Pty Ltd and more specifically Dave Nosworthy now offers YOU the budding professional cricketer the unique experience of being able to be mentored, guided, influenced, and tutored – as you make your way along your own path towards professional and international playing success. Over the last 30 years as firstly a full time Professional Cricketer himself and then as a highly successful Professional High Performance and International Cricket Coach, Dave has had first-hand experience of dealing with what it really takes to ‘bridge the gap’ between amateur sport and professional sport – and on how best to lead gifted players from ‘being good to being great’. Dave’s track record and hands on dealings with some of the top players in the world speaks for itself…

The Player Mentorship Program (PMP) is not too specific in its output, as each and every client we deal with is a different character, and each and every one of you has very different needs in terms of being guided and mentored towards the top ranks. There are however some key principles and operational plans which remain standard for all of our clients who range from 14yr olds to 28yrs olds as follows:

  • Mentorship sessions are all held privately yet casually between ‘the Cricket Mentor’ (Dave Nosworthy) and you the client, in a relaxed and comfortable environment agreed to by both parties. The interactions are generally scheduled for an hour depending on what is needed or what is being dealt with on the day – however sessions generally run between 40 and 60 minutes.
  • The mentorship sessions are preferably held face to face, however there is an option to use Skype or Zoom if the client is on a cricket tour, has other commitments, is based elsewhere in the country/world, or if the ‘Cricket Mentor’ himself is out of town.
  • All matters discussed and shared at these mentorship sessions are totally confidential between the ‘Cricket Mentor’ and you the client, unless you yourself wish to share any of the dealings with your wider network.
  • Our mentorship programmes are not a ‘quick fix’ solution – as it requires first and foremost some sort of ‘real trust’ to really work towards a solid relationship and an open & direct understanding. Naturally this takes some time – along with commitment and effort from both the ‘Cricket Mentor’ and you the client.
  • Our mentorship and influence is based on high performance and international cricketing needs, whilst slowly working through and understanding all the key decisions that need to be made in both match time, training time and off the field of play. Furthermore, our PMP enhances you the client’s ability to grasp the entire concept of pressure and stress management that simply comes with the territory – and which are key areas in terms of you learning to ‘quieten the mind’ on the way to success.
  • Lastly, our mentorship programme covers aspects such as general cricket awareness, advanced decision making, training regimes, strategic and tactical decision making and all the mental toughness aspects that come with learning to make the correct decisions mentally in the heat of the moment and at that next level.
  • In certain circumstances our clients Parents, Coaches or even Agents are mentored at times along with the client in certain sessions if needed and agreed to by the client, as a clear understanding and open relationship is key along the path of success.

The Assessment

Cricket Mentor have identified that there are so many cricketers who wish to be considered as an Overseas Cricket Pro or as an Amateur Cricketer in the UK or in many other countries around the world. Players are signing up on mass with Agents and they are also speaking directly to Clubs. Realistically both Agents and Clubs have almost ZERO real knowledge of the players real cricketing ability, their cricket awareness levels & intellect or even their face to face personality – other than a CV prepared by the player themselves. As such, Clubs and Agents are being thrown in the deep end and are having to make key decisions on their Clubs or Teams future Overseas Professionals, Coaches or Amateurs with little or no real knowledge.

This is where Cricket Mentor comes in, as we in South Africa will assess a wide range of factors for you about the player. We will see the player in person and shall send the appropriate client and the player a full assessment once completed. Players themselves can also be assessed, so as to immediately add the assessment document to their CV which will give them the edge.
