About Inspired

Inspired Cricket is a project of passion. The concept was brought to life in the slip cordon of a premier league club match in 2008, between Iain and Rick, and has grown from there!

Both men agreed that all cricket training sessions should be EPIC!


They set about bringing resources to coaches of all ages and standards, from the enthusiastic volunteer parent, through to the highly qualified professional coach.

Now resources have been used in 13 different countries, and the energy and enthusiasm for developing players of all ages continues to grow, around the world.

Coaching is one of the most rewarding things that anyone can do, so take a look at our resources and start helping to inspire the next generation of cricketers.
