Junior Academy - Group 1
Group 1 consists of players from the younger age groups and the session timings are from 8.30am until 10.00am on a Saturday morning. Players are required to arrive 5 minutes before the session commences so that they are ready to go at 8.30am.
This week Saturday 25 July at Lilydale where we will are going to cover a number of areas:
The warm ups will be a bit more high intensity to teach the players how to get their bodies ready to play in a short period of time.
All players will be split into even groups and go through bowling and batting throughout the morning
We have a specialist boxing coach this week who will take the kids in sessions to go through balance and agility exercises which is vitally important for cricketers. As the morning progresses we will just pull the kids out of their groups and send them to the balance and agility training.
