The BCF Cricket Academy program will be starting from January 2018 in Mechelen. All juniors between the ages of 5 and 19 years old are invited to take part.
The program will run on most of the Sundays from January 2018. Details are given below
The academy is split into age categories (see below) and will cover technical, mental, physical and tactical aspects of cricket. Long term athlete development (LTAD) principles will be incorporated into skills training to improve and develop physical literacy relevant to all sports, not only cricket.
During the academy the following will be dealt with:
-On the spot video analysis as you train.
-Ideas and drills from
other similar sports that will fast track your cricket skills
-Sports psychology principles for handling pressure during competition
-Physical fitness adapted to growth spurt and specific to bowlers, batsmen and wicket-keepers.
We are proud that 8 of the present Belgium National team players have come through our academy programmes and are now competing at international level. These players are still in our academy, as they strive to reach higher levels of competence.
Participants will be evaluated during the academy and in March 2017 a final test and evaluation will be held to move players on to a higher level based on their capabilities, for example a 12 year old child could move on to an U-15 group instead of U-13 because he has shown maturity beyond his age. Similarly an U-17/19 can be called to trials to play for the National senior team.
Please note each session is limited to maximum of 20 participants.
