The Belgium Cricket Federation cricket academy (BCFCA) was created with the aim of providing quality cricket training and the opportunity to learn from experts the art of cricket in a fun, safe and innovative environment.
In order to provide easy access to as many children between the ages of 6 to 18 as possible, the BCFCA is located in 5 cities throughout Belgium all year round. In winter we use indoor facilities and in summer various cricket grounds are used within those cities.
This all-year round academy integrates the best in cricketing techniques, technology and coaches to develop a World-Class Cricketer of Tomorrow.
For the overall development of the young cricketer we follow the principles of Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) in our training program which are expertly done by our experienced coaches in this field. Ideas and drills from other sports are incorporated into cricket training to help our cricketer fast track their learning of complex cricket skills, while at the same time improve their physical literacy.
At the end of each program players will be tested and evaluated individually and will receive a certificate of competency or participation depending on the result.
