The three-day session, taking place at Lismore's St John's College in Woodlawn Road, will also cover the history, rules and spirit of the game.

As well as being a highly respected coach, Brenton also played with and against Australian legends including the Waugh brothers, Alan Border and Adam Gilchrist.

He has also coached test players including Phil Hughes, Brett Lee and Andrew Symonds.

Boys and girls are welcome to the event, which is open to both starter and intermediate level players.
