EMERGING PLAYERS SQUAD

The Emerging Players squad is for cricketers who have been involved in the game for a few years and want to learn more about the technical requirements of the game, as well as training habits and drills.

Example:

This squad is ideal for someone who has played cricket for a few seasons and wants to bat higher up the order or learn how to bowl a wrong’un or a slower ball. This squad is about teaching players about the more technical aspects of the game. Technical development will be a focus and players will learn a few drills that you can use to develop this part of your game when you are practicing with your friends or family.

HIGH PERFORMANCE SQUAD

HIGH PERFORMANCE SQUAD

The High-Performance squads are for experienced cricketers who have identified a particular area of their game that they would like to develop during the pre-season. This squad is tailored for representative and A/B cricketers – those cricketers looking to take their game to the next level.

Example:

This squad is ideal for someone who might be a batsman who struggles to play particular shots ie pull shot, sweep shot or needs technical development to take their game to the next level.  Or you may be a bowler looking to develop your batting skills and push to become an all-rounder, earning a spot higher in the batting order at your club or school team.

The Off-Season program also provides spin bowlers, fast bowlers and wicket keepers a great opportunity to work on their skills in a focused and controlled environment, being mentored by current grade cricketers and Cricket Australia accredited coaches.
