Parents Guide – FAQ’S

Tell me about your staff?

The academy makes certain all our staff are safe to work with children and qualified to coach. We only work with First Aid certified and DBS checked coaches. They are all dedicated to coach to your requirements and each one will have a cricket qualification approved by the ECB, A UK COUNTY or BCCI. 

What makes you different?

Our coaches all have either a cricket coaching qualification; Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 or played professional cricket. Devices such as the Drone & Go Pro cameras help us capture footage of your child’s amazing experience. Each parent will receive videos and photos of their child in action, something you can cherish forever. We understand how important paying full attention is and so we keep a very small coach per child ratio, no more than 12-15 kids for each qualified coach. 

What are your course hours?

The Summer Holiday Coaching Camps runs from 9am to 3pm Monday through Friday. There is an extra club option from 8.30 am until 9am and 3pm to 4pm for an addition charge of £5 per child per day. If you wish to apply for the extra club option, please select this at checkout.

What happens when it rains?

The aim is to inspire and develop skills regardless of the weather and we will always take care of the kids for the duration of the camps. We will aim to keep the children playing where possible but on the occasions of heavy rain we bring them into our pavilion where they will participate in fun activities such as quizzes.

Who can attend?

All our offerings cater for all abilities and proactively encourage the participation of both boys and girls.  We accept children from the age of 7-15 years of age for holiday courses.

What clothing does my child need to wear?

We request you dress your child in sports clothing along with trainers.

What happens for lunch?

We do not provide lunches. Please kindly sending your child along with a packed lunch with enough food and drink for the day.

What equipment will my child need to bring with them?

The academy has a kit squad that will be around to ensure everyone has access to the equipment necessary, however, if your child is keen to take on the any child booked hardball cricket, please ensure they bring a box and helmet.

Can I book one-off days?

We are more than happy for you to book your child on a few days (subject to availability), as we are aware people cannot always commit to the full course. Please get in touch with us for more information.
