Keryn Ambler has a lifelong passion for cricket – as a player, captain and coach.
In his youth, he played in representative age groups and for the Canterbury A team and, more recently, played 14 seasons of premier cricket with the Lancaster Park Cricket Club. Keryn was fortunate to play three seasons abroad – two in the UK, and one in the Netherlands – as a player/coach. He is currently Development Manager at Christchurch Metro Cricket.
Keryn has a Bachelor in Sport and Recreation Management, Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (PE and Health), and a NZ Cricket Level 2 coaching certificate.
He believes the key to successful coaching is not only about knowing the game technically and tactically, but also about relating to each player, coaching them as individuals and drawing them together to create a unified team.
