He has since retired due to injuries and is now coaching the next generation of Australian cricketers.
Jason’s cricketing expertise is highly sought after by many clubs, schools, teams and individuals as he has a passion for coaching with the aim of providing all players from beginners to professionals a coaching service that is innovative and non-restrictive to allow players to express themselves.

Jason has created a coaching philosophy that revolves around guiding each player in the right direction while giving hints along the way to help players develop a technique that is efficient, successful and ultimately their own. This philosophy is shared with all coaches that Jason educates and utilises at Elite Cricket to maintain consistent coaching throughout.
His exposure to many of the best players and coaches around the world has allowed him to learn from the very best and this is something he wants to share with everyone. He is a fantastic people person which gives him the ability to connect with anyone he meets and believes in treating everyone as an equal.
