Cape Cricket Coaching & Tuition

A typical week day would consist of 3 hours tuition each morning, a gym session and then additional one-to-one coaching or nets where bowling machine sessions and video analysis are available. Coaching feedback is provided as an essential part of the end of a session.


Training sessions take place at the renowned Paul Roos Gim School, utilising the modern training facilities there.  Indoor training also takes place at Boland Park Stadium located nearby in Paarl.
