The club is excited to announce the launch of an Academy programme for juniors identified as the most committed and talented each season. The invitation-only Academy is being introduced to encourage and develop young cricketers into not only quality senior club cricketers, but hopefully county and beyond.
The squad will be selected each winter by the Head Coach and the junior team coaches and will be for ages 13-17 with exceptions made for players outside that group who show outstanding commitment and special talent. The training programme will run from April to September and will be of County standard. The programme will focus on all of the following:
- Technical improvement
- Tactical Analysis and Understanding
- Fitness training
- Mental development
- Team Building
- Laws of the game
The squad will attend a three-day pre-season camp and training sessions will be every Friday evening after the camp from 18h00-20h00. Friendly matches will also be arranged during the season and the club is also considering a tour each season.
The club is confident that this programme will be of enormous benefit to the players selected, act as motivation for the rest of the junior section and in time strengthen the senior section.
