Winter Academy


What are they?

Junior Cricket programmes aimed at accelerating the development of young cricketers to help them reach their potential.

Each Academy is run for 40 hours over the winter period and players will take part in skill development sessions (batting, bowling, fielding, wicket-keeping in small groups of 3 or 4 players per coach, games and conditioned net practice).

Head Coach Sean Hooper ( ECB Level 4) will be leading the team of excellent coaches including  Gary Bone.

Now in its 7th year, our winter academy has helped to develop a number of young players from Cornwall providing a fun learning environment where effort to improve is the vital ingredient which we require from the players.

We have a big emphasis on players developing their cricket whilst having fun and encourage athletic development which forms the basis of all sports skills not just cricket.from that we aim to develop all round cricketing skills from the basic disciplines to mental and tactical approaches to the game.


Who are they aimed at?

A small group of up to 16-20 very good cricketers – County standard or very close to it – that want to really improve on in their game. Players will be grouped and sessions organised to keep them challenged throughout.
