Info / Facts

"In most sports, the clubs are better resourced to run sport than the schools," Cricket is the prime example.

"Some kids and parents are being asked to make really big decisions while they're still at school," We want our club to be seen as an option for that serious cricket player.

"I'm hearing more and more parents say if they don't get their kids into the big schools or stronger clubs, they won't make it,"  

"We will do our best to provide the tools before for the next step to Rep or NZC cricket 

Fundamental Questions.

Is this Academy backed by NZC, CD, HKCA? 

No - Not at present, this is just a Weraroa club run programme's.  

The club has not been in contact with NZC, CD, HKCA, This is a in house project.


Who Is The Coach?

Daniel Williams - UK Level 2 Coach

Neil Barnett - NZC L2 Coach

Will my child benefit in the long-term from the academy or programmes?: 

That is our goal until your child is ready to step into higher NZC programmes run by HKCA or CD.

No reason also why WCC members cant do both when ready.

For whose benefit is the academy programme's?:  

Player / Families & Club.

Will kids and parents be brainwashed by people at this academy who have ulterior motives: 

No, this is not our vision, our focus to player development which will support our club player & team strength and support the club future holding onto players long term.

Does it take a holistic approach to the child or will it reinforce the one-dimensional notion that my child is only a cricket player?:  

You decide on that one as a family.   This is not the club goal.  We support children and youth trying many sports.
