eek, the idea of "building" a bowler is scary. Bowling is a natural thing and actions have to suit the individual.
All the evidence suggests that the best way to develop quick bowlers is by them developing their actions organically. Ie give them the basics and they go out and bowl a lot and get a feel of what works for them. Then good coaches shape the bowler. Even very raw bowlers can be shaped but they need to develop some basic action first.
The problem a lot of coaches have is that a) they don't really know what they are talking about and destroy young quicks b) they incorrectly try and apply a cookie cutter approach to bowling that ignores the needs of the athlete c) they look to develop the best possible player at a young age which doesnt necessarily allow for continued development and can stunt the bowler. By heavily coaching a young quick, a glass ceiling is placed on their potential.
For young quicks, less is more.
It does sound a potentially rewarding experience but please be careful. I say this not directed at you as a coach but based on years of watching coaches fail with quicks.
