Designed as the perfect way of bridging the gap between junior and senior cricket, this course will help bring young players to the peak of their technical and tactical ability across a 10 week period. Suitable for players aged 15-18, the UK Government’s definition of U18 now includes young people who were under 18 on 31 August 2020, even if they turn 18 during the remainder of the academic year.
Based at the Yorkshire Indoor Cricket Centre, Headingley, the course will cover everything from the basic skills and drills the pros still use to advanced techniques used at the highest level of the game. With innovation and expression becoming core components of the modern era, players will be encouraged to challenge the norm and train out of their comfort zone by a top level coaching featuring ex professionals and ECB Level 3 & 2 coaches. Comprehensive video analysis will be on offer throughout, both technical and tactical training will be covered, as well as fitness and match preparation.
We will be utilising the new Zwingo batting aid to enhance everyone’s balance, alignment and striking zones!
