Juniors – Winter Academy 2018

It’s winter time and it’s footy season but there’s still room for cricket!! Over the past years the Club has run an Academy to give our junior players an opportunity to get a head start on the cricket season ahead. This year is no different in respect to the Club running the Winter Academy, although there is a difference in how the Academy will be run this year. Details will highlighted below.

Key Information
Start Date: Friday 3rd August 6:00pm
Where: The ‘Big Shed’ @ Trinity College
Cost: $150 (Junior fees NOT included in this cost)
Running Time: 10 x 45 minute sessions per week
Age Groups: Under 14 up to 1st year senior players

Overview of Academy
This years Academy will be run by Stephen Hands and 3 other coaches. The Academy will start with all attendees completing some testing on batting, bowling and fielding for collection and re-testing on completion of the 10 weeks. Each session will have 2 players per coach, per net. This will give the players as close as possible to one on one coaching as well as building their skills with team mates. Each session will have a ‘focus’ that is designed to improve their skills, data will be collected during these sessions by the coaches so the players get instant feedback. On completion of the Academy all players will receive a personalised report showing their progression throughout the Academy as well as areas they can improve further and some drills to accompany them. As stated above, there are only 16 spots and few have been filled already so if you are interested please get in quick and send an email to handsy34@bigpond.com stating your interest as well as some information on what areas you would like to improve. It will be a great opportunity to get a head start on the coming season. I look forward to seeing you on the 3rd of August
