WINTER PROGRAMS - OFF SEASON

******This program has now been exhausted******  

OFF-SEASON - ACADEMY PROGRAMS

OBJECTIVE:

This off-season program is designed for young cricketers to improve their cricket skills during an 8-10 week cricket program running from June to August.  The program runs similar to an academic style containing a specific curriculum for three different levels of players, e.g., Beginner, Developing and High Performance. The Canberra Cricket Academy (CCA) curricula generally follows the augmented KUMON technique - it means a player practices on a specific task/drill during a training session followed by homework and the trained exercises will be reviewed next week, etc. While in CCA training, players will always learn how a drill will adapt to a player’s physical and mental strength.  CCA has demonstrated its developed modules to many players where players have developed their skills significantly within a few months’ time.    

The ultimate objective of this program is to promote (/outdoor) physical activities to the ACT’s youth community through cricket.

COACHES:

Specialist and emerging coaches in the ACT regions. CCA trains coaches as per CCA developed training modules, techniques and practices.  

PLAYERS:

Juniors (from the age of 7) and seniors of any level

TRAINING CURRICULA (Guidelines for HP Div1 Level): 

Week 1- Week 3:

Batting: Off-side practice – focuses more on "cover-drive" and "cut-shot". CCA utilises many techniques to train young players; one such is the box technique. CCA upholds its four defined core principles to start any session. It influences players using more flexible (tennis) elbows and restricts the use of the wrist for playing off-side drives. CCA educates and trains players with the science behind the technique and how it influences the body while adapting those cricket skills 

Bowling: CCA will employ fundamental bowling practices which ensure that natural talent is nurtured. Four areas of bowling will be practised to hone their bowling skills.

Wicket Keeping: Fundamental wicketkeeping drills with flexibility, movement and balance.

Week 4- Week 6: 

Batting: On-side practice – more focus on leg-glance and pull-shot. For beginners, CCA employs an open-up technique to start with for developing a player purely side-on. It contradicts with the conventional ways of teaching young players, CCA proves that it works the best.  Interestingly, CCA motivates players to use more of the wrist than elbow for honing this on-drive.

Bowling: CCA coaches will now concentrate more on seam-landing, controlling the balls and bowling to the batters.

Wicket Keeping: Advanced wicketkeeping drills with flexibility, body movement, align to the balls and balance.

Week 7- Week 8:

Batting: CCA coaches will explain the differences of playing quick and slow bowling. During these two weeks, batting against spin bowling will be focused on along with body adjustment, widening the batting crease and quick foot movement. CCA will practically show the players how to reach the ball and then employ four ways to play spin balls.

Bowling: At this stage, CCA coaches will identify the specific areas of improvement of a bowler and guide the bowler to develop innovative ways of bowling. Players will hone their skills on how to bowl in a game situation.

Wicket Keeping: Complex wicketkeeping drills with flexibility, body movement, align to the balls and balance.

Week 9- Week 10:

Batting: Players will review all skills learned so far and select their best possible shots during a game situation. Many players will be interested to learn innovative shots such as scoop or 360-degrees using the back foot.

Bowling: CCA's specialist coaches will discuss human physiology, biomechanics and their implementation on a bowler’s ability. Further discussion will be held on the areas of improvement.

Wicket Keeping: wicketkeeping against batting and bowling situation

Two games will be played either within the CCA squads or against other club players of the same level. These will depend on ground and player availability.
