The Academy's focus is to coach players in batting, bowling, fielding and wicket keeping and to develop and improve technical proficiency, tactical awareness, cognitive understanding, physical development and a psychological grounding in each athlete. The teams will train regularly under the guidance of qualified cricket coaches and will compete locally and/or overseas.
