The Academy Programme


The aim of the Cape Cricket Academy is to give cricketers the opportunity to experience a full training schedule aimed at improving them as players in all the major disciplines of their games and at the same time to experience a different culture on and off the cricket field.

On the Academy programme you will be playing cricket at the weekends for a local South African club side whilst perfecting your game throughout the week with cricket coaching, fitness training and sports physiology and psychology from the best in South Africa.

Be prepared to work hard and be prepared for a lot of laughs and fun! This is the ideal programme for overseas players looking for a Southern hemisphere season, with a structured programme to get the most out of your "South Africa Cricket Experience".

Players can join the Academy on a full-time or part-time basis with the aim of giving extensive opportunities for overseas cricketers of adult age. Experience a full training schedule aimed at improving players in all facets of their games and also to experience a different culture through your time on and off field time.
