HIGH PERFORMANCE ACADEMY 2017/2018
ARE YOU READY FOR THE NEXT LEVEL?
The Gary Kirsten Cricket High Performance Academy Programme is designed to assist players in reaching their next level as well as having a unique cricketing experience in the heart of Cape Town.
The three month programme involves daily coaching interventions with a team of specialist practitioners in a highly professionalised environment. Players will get every chance to enhance and improve their skills as well as share their experiences with fellow cricketers both through intense practices and competitive matches.
An intake of 20 players from different parts of the world will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures and learn from each other in a team environment. All players need to be either playing first class cricket or about to become a first class cricketer.
As part of a holistic development approach, each player’s physical condition will be assessed, followed up by an individualised training programme. Each player will also have regular interventions with a qualified mental conditioning practitioner. A personal development plan which includes best practice in leadership across sporting codes is also a hallmark of the programme.
The players will also get experience the beauty of Cape Town in a variety of interesting ways with weekly excursions and this includes “township coaching” where the players will get to share their knowledge with young players who have limited access to quality facilities and coaching.
This will be the third year of HPA and we look forward to sharing a unique cricket experience with ambitious players seeking to raise their game.
