Zurich Pace Lab
Started in 2019, the cricket Zurich Pace Lab was launched as an initiative to nurture young cricketing talent in the UAE. We gave 40 young fast bowlers across the country a once in a lifetime opportunity to get an exclusive all-day pass to train with one of the best fast-bowling coaches in the world – Steffan Jones.
Steffan was the Bowling coach of the former IPL champions Rajasthan Royals in 2019. With over 20 years of cricketing experience, Steffan believes in a multi-disciplinary approach and is an expert in bio-mechanics. His unique training methods focus on the player’s physical, tactical and technical aspects.
During this Pace Lab on Friday 26th July 2019, Steffan profiled and assessed each player’s strengths and weaknesses. He then proceeded to conduct a number of training exercises throughout the day focusing on the approach, jump and throw aspects of fast bowling. Working with each participant on skill and stability exercises as well as with weighted and medicine ball techniques, Steffan helped these aspiring fast bowlers to pick up the pace in their game. At the end of the Pace Labs, Steffan ran a competition to determine and then crown the 2019 Zurich Fast Bowler of the Year, one boy and one girl.
Stayed tuned on our social channels Instagram and Facebook for information on upcoming Zurich Pace Labs.
