The Complete Cricketer Academy, Cape Town, will shortly be undertaking a cricket tour of the UK. It is the first such venture for the academy, established in 2001 by Lightie Coetzee. Joined by Laurie Ward in 2007, the academy now hosts over 200 youngsters a week for cricket coaching.
Exciting developments are also in progress with the introduction of new facilities, including new nets, a gym and access to specialists such as physiotherapists, sports psychologists, nutritionists and optometrists. The state of the art net facilities will be kitted out with top level technology, including video streaming and the full PitchVision system. This will allow for motivating, measurable coaching to raise the levels of performance higher still. The UK Tour.
A group of 14 players have been invited to represent the academy on tour. The squad recently played two warm-up games and levels of performance were high. Some footage can be seen in the video below.The players will continue to train at the academy and outside ahead of the tour.
“We have a talented group of U12/U13 players who have worked particularly hard and have earned the right to be part of what will be a tremendous experience for them”.
A huge thank you must be passed to our Tour Operator, Chris Brothers of Brothers Sport who has come up with a tremendous itinerary and has worked tirelessly to create a brilliant package at an incredible price.
Also, the boys and supporters will be proud to wear their new kit and travelling clothes generously sponsored by Gunther and Annie Wucherpfennig, at MicroZA.
