Plastic equipment, hitting off tees, retiring after 12 balls...
If your child is anything like the more advanced players in the 6 -10 age bracket, then they're likely getting bored and frustrated with what's on offer and losing interest in the game they love.
And that's exactly who we've created the WCC Foundation Academy for.
Imagine how much your child would improve and enjoy the game with the training they would receive in a quality coaching environment.
A progressive coaching program that will teach your child vital fundamental skills and improve their knowledge of the game in preparation for a long and successful cricket career.
All while using real equipment in a fun and energetic environment.
But we didn't stop there!
With regular coaching sessions throughout the season plus constant feedback, support and learning, the WCC Foundation Academy Program is GREAT value for money, because this season its FREE!!
While we as a club find our feet and get running this season the Foundation Academy Program at Weraroa CC will be no charge.
Small groups and a great coach to player ratio ensures your child receives maximum 1-1 time and allows them to build a relationship with their coaches.
Cricket is not just about the technical side. Yes we'll improve your childs skills, but we'll focus on other aspects of their game such as game awareness, cricket knowledge and tactics.
We'll also ensure your child leaves the program confident and familiar with real equipment and hard cricket balls
Whether it be through our facebook or by online, or face to face, players in our academy programs love the fact they get to interact with professionals. Players, coaches, or industry experts such as fitness or nutritionists.
The WCC T20 Foundation Academy will be run on Mondays, every 2 weeks
x 1.5 Hours every 2 weekly sessions through out the season.
Designed to progressively develop players skills and prepare them for longer format junior cricket.
We'll also get your child familiar with using real equipment and hard balls. We'll also help your child develop plans to score runs and take wickets on game day.
We will also run a couple of class rooms training blocks during the cricket season.
Part of each session will be dedicated to educating your child on other facets of the game. Rules, field settings, scoring, cricket terms etc. Lessons will be accompanied by a take home resource so they can continue their development away from the nets.
Video training that provides a flexible learning environment and acts as an education resource for you, their supportive parent, and provides you with a HEAP of drills you can do with them in your own time.
