#03: Steven Betts (father of District u14)

“I first observed Viv Paver’s cricket batting coaching style in an
adjacent net session. I was immediately impressed with his technical
observations and comments, and innovative practice techniques. Most
importantly however, I was impressed with his patience and kind manner
towards his young student.

I decided to track him down to coach my 8 year old son in batting. This
proved relatively easy as he was well known with an excellent reputation
as a cricket coach.

Viv began coaching my son in September 2010 with regular one on one
sessions. Viv has since shown immense patience and guidance in developing my son’s technical batting game whilst encouraging his natural flair. Viv has achieved this by providing an exciting and varied range of coaching options. Viv has always created a safe and comfortable environment for him, whilst also pushing him to trust and believe in his capabilities.

Viv has become a very sound and important role model for my son. This
positive relationship has allowed my son to understand the intricacies
of cricket, bat with confidence, and perform with a technical
proficiency beyond his years.

I absolutely recommend Viv Paver as a cricket batting coach. He plays
the game, understands the technicalities and his professional enthusiasm is
infectious. My son has certainly benefitted from his expertise and
guidance.”
