Kent Cricket have this week appointed Stephanie Masters as the Strength & Conditioning lead for the Girl’s Talent Pathway.
Masters is a current Strength & Conditioning Coach at Unity Fitness in Canterbury and is also a keen sportswoman, having progressed through the Kent Cricket age groups and onto the junior England pathway as a young cricketer.
Kent’s current under 11 to under 17 girl’s age groups will now benefit from specialist strength & conditioning input from Stephanie and our coaches will be able to seek advice and counsel to assist in their roles.
“Fitness and conditioning is a key element of modern day cricket, not only in terms of enhancing performance but also in the prevention of injury. Stephanie brings with her a good understanding and knowledge of the specific sport and plenty of experience of working directly with female cricketers. She will also be a fantastic role model for the girls” said Helen Fagg (Kent Girl’s Pathway Manager).
Masters will also work closely with the Specialist Skills Coaches and the Kent Women’s Strength & Conditioning Coach, Guy Pitchers, in a collaborative approach across the female pathway.
Commenting on her appointment, she said: “I am excited to be given this opportunity to deliver the new strength & conditioning programme for the 2021 season – something that was not available in my playing days for the Kent Girls”
