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.


National Coach, David Moore stated,


"The BCB is continually building upon the progress that is made in the development of young people both as cricketers and productive members of Bermudian society. We are continuing to spread the net wide to give young cricketers the opportunity of elite coaching and character development by having these selection trials. I encourage all those young cricketers who would like to be a part of the Bermuda Cricket Board National Academy (BCBNA) program to attend these trials. I would also encourage all the Club coaches, Administrators and school teachers to support young cricketers who you believe have the potential and get them along to the trials."


"The program is already having positive benefits for our young cricketers. Jordan Smith (Under 18 and Under 15 squads) and Rudy Butterfield (Under 15 squad) have won scholarships to private schools in the UK through their cricket skills. The reputation of the BCBNA program is gaining strength internationally where being a part of the squad is opening doors in the cricket and educational world in countries throughout the world."
