As the cricket season has drawn to a close, we begin to reflect on England’s world champion status and on our performances over the past 5 months. The ever-thought provoking question arises ‘how did I do?’. Whatever your answer may be shall not matter because we will help you do better!
The Winter Academy is a 9-week program that will be divided into 3 separate sessions for Beginners, Juniors and Seniors.
Beginners 7 – 10 years old
The beginners’ program will involve learning about the game, as well as learning how to play it. We will strip cricket down to it its basic skills and progress them into how they fit into the sport is a whole. We will look at establishing techniques that players will carry with them through the rest of their playing days along with a bag of tricks to give players an advantage during the early stages in their cricket journeys.
Juniors 10 -13 years old
Seniors 14 years old and above
We have extended the Academy program this year to allow for further progress to be made on your game. The initial 3 weeks would be spent tackling the difficulties faced during the season. The following 3 weeks will be spent on adding something new to your game. The final 3 weeks will include a polish-up of the basics along with the new additions to your game. This will be tested in game-scenarios and group discussions as the GECKO coaching team guide you through the unforgiving path to reach the top of your game in our beloved sport.
