Cricket Appeal provides players with the opportunity to work closely with our coaching staff during the summer at our Academy programs. Academies are the best way for players to get a better understanding of the game over a block of training sessions in groups. Coaching staff will facilitate for each individual and allow the player to advance a lot faster then your regular club session.

In these programs player will be assessed on batting, bowling and fielding. Game scenarios, net sessions, fielding drills and captaincy are just a few of the skills your player will take away. Most Academies run for at least 10 weeks, giving players enough time to form great relationships with our coaching staff and allow them to receive the feedback needed to advance in the game.

For those players looking to take their game to the next level, check the info section of each academy Cricket Appeal runs below.

  • If rain or weather is to dangerous to run an outdoor session, then the session will not be rescheduled. Players will be asked to meet at the Cricket Sheds for captaincy talks, team building sessions and other cricket related activities.
  • A player may change from a Junior program to a Senior program if coaching staff sees fit. This decision will be made with parents consent.
  • All players are to bring cricket equipment to every session. Helmets will be required to be worn by batsmen in the nets at all times.
  • Parents are not to “hang around” the sessions once players have been dropped off. Coaching staff will work best with players once parents are not involved.
  • Some sessions will not involve the use of nets.
  • Disruptive players may be asked to leave a session at the request of coaching staff. Players will not receive a refund for mis behaviour.
  • Academies are not refundable unless player has given at least 2 weeks’ notice prior to commencement of each program. If player is injured, a player may receive a refund. Once an Academy has started, an injured player may also get a refund for the amount of sessions missed in the program.
