It has been a pleasure to have been involved with Steve Chapman for almost twenty years. I have known Steve from his time as a junior player in the UK and I have followed with interest his career as a player and now as a highly qualified coach. As he embarks on an exciting new coaching project, I have no doubt that he will add value as a coach in any environment, and I fully endorse Steve himself along with the programs and concepts he now has up and running in Australia.

I first met Steve back in 1997 when I was an overseas professional playing in the North of England. At this time I was still aspiring to professional cricket in WA and worked with Steve throughout the summer developing and fine tuning aspects of my game. His attention to detail was fantastic and his technical knowledge outstanding. I continued to work with him over the coming years during my time traveling to England to play cricket and finally made it into the WA team during the Australian season of 2005 – 06. Steve`s passion towards his coaching paralleled my desire to succeed at the highest level and I found the time spent working with him invaluable towards making professional cricket, indeed now that he is based in Melbourne I will endeavor to work with him at any opportunity I have when Im interstate. I can whole heartedly recommend Steve to anybody who has the desire to play top class cricket or cricketers who are looking to improve their knowledge of the game.
Clint Heron, former Western Australian State cricketer.
Having known and worked with Steve for only a short time during his recent visit to the UK, where I was employed as overseas professional for Darlington CC, I was very impressed with his enthusiasm in helping players develop their game. His knowledge and passion of the game is second to none and he is able to get the best out of players he coaches. He also knows what it takes to play high levels of cricket and I wouldn`t hesitate in recommending him to young cricket players wanting to improve their all round game.
Aaron Heal, former Western Australia State Cricketer
Just a quick note to let you know I`ve been selected in Hawthorn`s first XI tomorrow. Only batting at 7 but being a 100 over match should get a chance to make some runs.
Just wanted to say a quick Thank You for all your help. The sessions we had earlier this year really helped me improve my game. Something as simple as keeping my head straight and waiting that fraction of a second longer to hit the ball has improved my game significantly.
Your passion for coaching is second to none and I am very grateful for everything you have done for me. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn`t be in this position today if it wasn`t for the sessions we had earlier this year.
Thanks again Steve!!
Steve’s coaching has resulted in immediate success with 2 St Mary\’s players scoring centuries in their first game of the season and another 3 players scoring half-centuries. His attention to detail mixed with his encouragement of natural flair is a perfect mix for our junior and senior players. We can’t wait to see the success of our bowlers this week. Keep up the great work!
John Brooks, Secretary St Mary’s Cricket Club
Thought we were just going on a cricket tour but experienced so much more. Picturesque cricket grounds, fantastic sightseeing, superb accommodation as well as meeting some brilliant people that will remain friends forever.
Can`t wait to do it all over again.
The Driscoll`s, Berwick CC
A great trip, you get to play against good opposition on great grounds, great location on the beach and plenty of things to do, a great way to have fun with other boys while playing cricket and a great opportunity to meet new kids.
Thanks for a great trip Chappy.
