I coach a lot of junior cricket (all be it in a different country) and find that I draw energy from the boys rather than struggle to motivate them. Its all about their interest rather than any skill I have. I cant imagine what it would be like to coach children that were not excited and eager to be there.
We dont play kwik cricket. Its all full on with coaching and games. From U'10s (at 1 school I am at) we have high expectations and kwik cricket or similar is no where to be seen.
It must be difficult to get kids enthused if they are not excited. At one of the schools I am at, cricket is a compulsary sport that all boys must play. At a young age it becomes a way they define themselves and a way to express themselves amongst their peers.
Sorry i cant really help.
