Gary Kirsten Cricket has teamed up with the Curro Hermanus Private School.
With a number of promising young players in the region, GKC ran two high intensity holiday clinics during December and January.
Under the guidance of GKC Coach, Bradley Moses, 30 players between the ages of 8-13 got their first taste of private cricket coaching.
With a dire lack of high performance coaching in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, GKC is looking forward to establishing a central hub at the school.
“We know that there is huge potential in the area. Our first two clinics created interest and introduced youngsters to professional coaching,” Ryan van Niekerk, GKC Coaching Director said.
The project will be managed by GKC coach, Garreth Von Hoesslin. While Moses, a former provincial cricketer and CSA Level 2 coach will mentor the youngsters.
“We cater for kids of all abilities. From beginners to more established players. We are confident that a lot of these youngsters can go on to play junior provincial cricket,” van Niekerk said.
Now that a relationship has been established, GKC plan on hosting many more clinics during the course of the year.
