Junior CricketJunior Winter Academy 2014-15

This year our Junior Winter Academy will run at the Eden Roskill Cricket Club Indoor Centre over 6 Sunday sessions, beginning 21 September and ending 26 October.

Our Premier fast bowler and Auckland representative Dean Bartlett will be in charge of our Junior Winter Academy this year. The Academy is designed to provide exposure to the hardball to younger players in a controlled environment and to provide expert technical coaching which will improve the skill levels of players. The High Performance Manager will be joined by our Junior Chairman Shane Wilson along with Committee Members and Senior Club players, who will provide assistance throughout the course of the Academy.

The Academy sessions will variously cover batting, bowling, fielding and other cricket skills – these are detailed in the Academy programme. Whilst the Club will endeavour to provide access to spare gear, as the Academy revolves around practice with the hardball, your child needs to bring their own gear.

The Academy is open to the following groups of players:

Current hardball players from Year 6 through to Under 18 players
Year 5 players playing hardball for the first time
Junior Girls playing hardball for the first time

On 21 September the Academy will be from 5.00pm to 8.00pm (after Junior Muster Day) – on all other dates, the Academy will be from 2.00pm to 5.00pm. Please note that these times represent the entire length of the facility booking for the Academy – the timings by age group are:

Year 5 Boys and Junior Girls: 5.00pm to 6.30pm on Sunday 21 September; 2.00pm to 3.30pm on all five following Sundays
Year 6 Boys and above: 6.30pm to 8.00pm on Sunday 21 September; 3.30pm to 5.00pm on all five following Sundays
