 The Complete Cricketer Academy

Dear Visitor


 The end of the cricket season is fast approaching and you should all be proud of your achievements and development this half of the season. We have had some exceptional personal milestones and strong team performances.

Winter is the time where we will be working hard to iron out technical issues, bowling actions and work on fitness and mental approach to get ready for the second half of the year.

We will only be changing to the winter timetable from early March as school extra-murals and holidays differ so much this year across the board.

I am aware that Elkanah House is changing to winter extra-murals from 22nd of March. Please let me know (urgently) if you need to change days to avoid clashes and we can see if we can accommodate changes between age groups from the school as an interim measure. If we cannot, we will ensure that we get the boys back in when we officially move to our full winter program.

We will be working as normal during the school holidays as different schools have different holidays.

Closed Easter weekend (Friday 22nd and Monday 25th) We will be closed but should you wish to make up the sessions we should be able to accommodate you during the holiday period. A pro-rata amount will be charged should you not be able to make up lessons.

No Price increase for monthly fees.

We are only too aware that finances are tighter than ever so we will be holding our general fees at current rates.

Update on the new facilities:

Work could soon be commencing on the new nets, gym and other developments at the arena for the cricket academy. We are also linking in with a physiotherapist, sports psychologist and other specialists to offer more than just technical coaching and support. There may even be the opportunity for some pilates for the Moms!

With the major new facilities will come exciting opportunities for more specialised and one-on-one coaching. The use of cutting edge technology and video feeds will be utilised. These sessions will obviously have to be charged differently and details will be announced when we have been given our new lease and rental costs. You are assured that we aim to bring these specialist coaching opportunities at competitive rates.
