Psychologist to boost Windies training camp

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, CMC – Sports performance psychologist Jocelyne Brooks will work with the West Indies women’s side during a training camp here in the build-up to the Pakistan series.

Brooks, a consultant with the England and Wales Cricket Board and English County Warwickshire, is expected to help boost the Windies preparation for the series comprising four One-Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals starting August 28.

“With her vast experience and wide skill set Jocelyne will certainly be able to assist the players in their mental preparation for the tough series against Pakistan and the World Cup qualifiers later this year,” WICB player relations officer Ayana Cooper said.

“The West Indies women’s team has been performing extremely well on the international circuit and now that they seek to take it to the next level in establishing themselves as one of the top ranked teams in world cricket they will have the benefit of advice and insights from Jocelyne.”

Brooks, who holds a PhD in Applied Psychology, has also worked as a sport scientist with the England women’s team for eight years.

She also works on the ECB Level IV Elite Coach Education programme, and served as sports psychology consultant to the British equestrian team at the Athens and Beijing Olympics and Paralympics.

West Indies play all four ODIs against Pakistan in St Vincent before moving on to Guyana for the four T20Is.
