School Holiday Programs are cricket coaching events that offer an enjoyable and challenging program of both individual and group skill development cricket activities and match play for players aged 7 -12.

School Holiday Programs are hosted annually during the April, July, October, December and January School holiday periods.

The highly successful and popular programs are conducted from 9am to 3pm in both 2 and 3 day formats across a range of venues.


This program has a minimum skill requirement and is specifically designed for cricketers playing at representative level or its school equivalent.

Successful applicants for this elite program will also possess high levels of cricket skill and fitness, be self-disciplined, highly motivated and aged 12 years or above.

Over 2 days our Academy players train like first class cricketers and are challenged by an intensive multi-disciplinary program to further enhance their existing skills and match awareness by a range of high performance coaches.


‘On the Ball’ is for girls and boys from 5 -7 years, who have perhaps never played cricket or who have just begun their cricketing career. In these sessions our aim is to have some fun, some fitness and learn about the game of cricket.

    Hi Mark,

    Last year you coached my two boys Marcus & Will, we live in the UK and are coming back to Oz over the xmas period.

    They boys loved the individual coaching they received and in fact helped them to both achieve county positions here in Berkshire. We are keen to come back if you are available??

    Are there any camps as well that are being organised from 14th December to 6th Jan???

    Many Thanks,
