Run by Tim van Noort, this will be very much like the SPP/Academy that Tim provided previously and most importantly, link into the new Club coach (who Tim has known for several years) and fit with the thinking of our new 1st XI Captain, James Howgate.
Those of you who have previously been coached by Tim are hopefully very excited at this prospect.
These Academy sessions will be aimed at our most serious cricketers, those aged Under 15 - Under 21 who play adult cricket and are keen for focused, challenging training, those with a mentality to learn both physically and mentally.
The numbers per group will be small (six typically), the groups will be selected by Tim and myself, not by age but ability/attitude, for example group one will be typically 1st XI biased, group two may well be biased to 2nd XI players - training is proven to be better when all participants are of a similar standard.
We are also keen for current 3rd XI players to attend, this is not simply about ability, however the standards will be as high, players attending are expected to give 100% effort to the training to reap the rewards. Based on the above, please below the proposed structure.
