South Africa

February 2017 will see our fourth cohort of Pro Coach players and parents to visit one of the most famous cities in the world, Cape Town. The all inclusive tour perfectly combines the ideal pre season cricket performance package with Cape Town’s finest tourist attractions! For the cricketers, 4 fixtures vs local opposition and use of training facilties at Western Province Cricket Club.  For the sightseers there is a visit to Table Mountain, Robben Island, a boat trip to Seal Island, Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, pengiuin colony at Boulders Beach, a day safari and a visit to Stellenbosch.

The trip is geared toward getting players ready for the upcoming season as they take part in competitive fixtures against tough local opposition whilst also carrying out intense and highly specific training. Last year’s trip saw current Yorkshire Captain Andrew Gale and all-rounder Tim Bresnan lead the coaching delivery, offering youngsters a unique insight into how professionals look to train and approach games.

Like any tour or trip away, the players will have an opportunity to take in some of the cultural experiences on offer. In the past trips have included visits to Lion Cub sanctuary and coaching in a local township.

Spain

Not necessarily known for its cricketing heritage, Spain is becoming an ever more popular destination for teams wanting to prepare for the upcoming English season! With a dryer, warmer climate as well as travel times and costs being far smaller than heading to the southern hemisphere or subcontinent!

This highly accessible facility has seen the likes of Lancashire, Middlesex, Sussex, Somerset and most recently, the Ashes winning England side use the Desert Springs academy to prepare.

Having run a successful trip last year, Pro Coach are now offering both private groups and a commercially run course to those who are interested!

No dates have yet be confirmed, but if you are interested in preparing like a pro then please contact a member of our team! on 0113 203 3609 or email chris@pcyc.co.uk .
