Players choice was founded in 2017 with the core purpose of providing practical, affordable and immediately applicable sports coaching and skills training to cricketers of all ages.
Founding Directors – former professional player and multiple WACA Coach of the Year Jim Allenby, and experienced cricket administrator and former grade cricketer Garry Martin – combined their respective cricket pedigree and business acumen with a passion for development to create a vision that serves the needs of young and aspirant cricketers in Australia and beyond. International coach Mickey Arthur joined the company in 2019 to renew his relationship with Garry and Jim and add some high-quality international coaching experience to the company and coaching program.
Players Choice provides individualised and specialised coaching to early-stage professionals seeking to make a career out of sport. It also offers a range of programs for youngsters who have just started their cricket journey and those playing in the junior ranks at school or club levels.

The Way We Work
Putting Players First
At Players Choice, the players – not the coaches – are the central focus of activity, and social media is used to showcase our players’ achievements and progress.
Our team operates as both coaches and facilitators, working with individual or group participants to first assess their strengths and weaknesses and then develop coaching interventions designed to provide continued improvement and growth. Our core focus is on giving our best in order to bring out the best in our players.
Committed to Safety
We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment to all program participants, from six-year old beginners to aspirant professionals. We uphold the highest duty of care standards ensuring that we consider all risks that might be involved in our work and making sure that we have measures in place to preserve the safety of players and ourselves at all times.
