Julian Wood biography

Julian Wood a former first class cricketer with Hampshire, is now an ECB Level 3 qualified coach who runs his own cricket academy, The JW Cricket Academy. Julian has gained a reputation as one of the most promising coaches in the country. Initially this was due to the fantastic work he had done developing the games of young cricketers aspiring to play the game professionally. However, it is Julian’s ground breaking coaching methods relating to ‘Power Hitting’ that have seen his stock rise most.
Having spent plenty of time in the USA observing the training methods and biomechanics associated with baseball, Julian has devised his own patented, cricket-specific training programme that is proven to improve a batsman’s hitting power via the use of personally designed training aids and drills.
Since implementing his ‘Power Hitting’ programme in 2011, Julian has built an impressive CV, working as a consultant coach for Gloucestershire CCC, Hampshire CCC, Middlesex CCC and the ECB, with particular focus on their T20 campaigns and improving key batter’s hitting for the game’s shortest format. Other counties have seen Julian’s work up close and intend to get him involved for the 2015 NatWest T20 Blast onwards. Julian has also worked closely with some of England’s premier T20 performers on an individual basis – in fact he worked closely with Alex Hales and Michael Lumb ahead of the recent Big Bash League in Australia.

With T20 cricket being a truly global phenomenon, Julian is looking to take his Power Hitting programme worldwide and would relish working with some of the best players in franchise T20 cricket.
