In this, a conversation that untethers the limitations that the term ‘strength and conditioning’ places on his profession, Sports Performance coach—Shayne Cooper—highlights the gaps left in Caribbean cricket due to the lack of coordination among Cricket Coaches, Sports Performance coaches and Strength and Conditioning coaches.

K: Right, and you currently operate your own Sports Performance facility.

K: You’ve also had multiple stints with the West Indies team.
