Join players from different countries and backgrounds during the Perth summer and form the next Perth Cricket Academy class of talented players. High-level training is provided on a daily basis and weekly matches will help put all new learning to the test and embed new skills more permanently.
To become an all round sportsman, skill is not the only aspect that sets you apart from the rest. The Perth Cricket Academy provides education on a wider range of skills necessary to become a better cricket player.
This will be developed through a variety of educational workshops specifically aimed to match your diet habits to a high performance environment and to educate you on the importance of injury prevention.
Strength and conditioning coaching will ensure you will get the most of your body to optimize performance. In depth reports as well as video footage pre and post program are available to track progress and analyze further areas of improvement.
By the end of our program we guarantee you are equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to make you a stronger and more disciplined person on and off the field which you can apply in your own training environment at home.
You are able to join the academy for either eight or twelve weeks. A typical week at the academy is outlined below. To ensure a good balance between training, matches and leisure are achieved, every fifth week is a rest week.
If you would like to further your coaching skills, The PCA can assist in finding (part time) coaching work for you during your stay. If you would like to travel and see what else Australia has on offer we’d highly recommend doing this after the academy program before you return home.
