  • Players of all abilities from those new to the game to elite Representative players – the program is adapted to individual skills
  • An Individual coaching option is also be available for those players who want to have intensive personal 1 on 1 coaching.

 What happens at the Academy

  • The Academy will be run over 10 weeks with a Coach / Player ratio of around 1:6
  • Academy Registrations will be capped to ensure that every person gets personal focus
  • Sessions will be both Outdoor and occasional Indoor sessions depending on weather conditions and availability
  • Session numbers will be capped as follows:
    • U12 – U13:                  18 players
    • U14 – U16:                  18 players
    • 16 years+ / Seniors:     12 players
    • Girls:                            12 players

$200 for a 10-week Program. This cost is well below any comparable Cricket Academy Program available – anywhere.

We can do it at this low price as we operate on a not-for-profit basis and our Club subsidises any cost shortfall so that our players can get the best coaching available at very low cost.
