The Cricket Coaching Institute

The Cricket Coaching Institute was founded in 1991 to provide expert professional cricket coaching in South Africa.

In more recent years our coaching has tended to focus mainly on Spin Bowling which is a highly specialised art.

From 1996 to 2008 Harry Shapiro worked together with former Protea spinner Omar Henry in running cricket coaching clinics for spin bowlers in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

In 2008 Harry Shapiro and former Protea off spinner Shafiek Abrahams were appointed by cricket South Africa to run a High Performance Spin Bowling Coaching program throughout South Africa.

A most important event regarding Spin Bowling Coaching in South Africa occurred in 1997 when Harry Shapiro met the great Australian Leg Spin coach, Terry Jenner. During the next 10 years Harry ran several leg spin bowling clinics with Terry and learnt a tremendous amount about the coaching of Leg Spin bowlers.

Terry passed away in May 2011. In his honour, Harry has started the Leg Spin Bowling Association.
