The Cricket Academy coaching programme has been created by top level ECB coaches with a focus on encouraging young cricketers can have fun and express themselves. The camps offer an exciting cricketing experience to enable individual cricketers to develop with a smile on their face. TCA creates a learning environment where children of all abilities can further their cricketing development.
TCA Let’s Play Cricket is a full day camp focused on learning through gameplay.
The camp introduces and develops basic and intermediate cricketing concepts in a fun learning environment.
Every day, every child will have the opportunity to bat, bowl and field across a variety of games and challenges.
TCA Development Centre is a 3-day programme for 10+ year olds, that offers children in-depth technical, tactical and skills-based coaching. ECB qualified coaches work with small groups of children to provide detailed individual feedback to drive development.
Throughout the coaching programme, the Development Centre players will take part in batting, bowling and fielding technical sessions alongside game-based scenario training including net practice and small sided games. All designed to challenge them to think like they would in a game.
A combined booking on Let's Play Cricket and Development Centre provides children with the best of both worlds, detailed coaching and fun games and challenges. The perfect option for a cricket mad child!
