The BCB National Academy is run under the directorship of the National Coach, David Moore. 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.


It is the BCB's overall aim to promote healthy lifestyles for all our young players and to provide a safe environment for them to compete at the highest level and to have fun.


Please bring your own water and equipment (if you have any) and wear comfortable athletic clothing and shoes and note to park at the main building and to walk down the side steps beside the gymnasium to access the nets.


If you have any questions about the trials, please contact the BCB on 292 8958 or email
