During the middle of July (2015), the Gary Kirsten Cricket Academy (GKCA) successfully conducted three training camps in England.
These cricket training camps were notable as this was the first time that GKCA had offered coaching of this nature in the UK. The aim of the camps was to improve the skill level of high-school age cricketers, as well as to inspire and boost the confidence of these young players.
Overall, the camps were characterised by high levels of enthusiasm from the participants, intensive training from Gary Kirsten and the other coaches, and venues of an extremely high standard.
The training given was a mixture of theory (lectures and Q&A) and practical (drills and techniques).
The first camp was held at Wellington College in Berkshire, the second at Abingdon Vale Cricket Club in Oxford and the third at Hurstpierpoint College in West Sussex.
The GKCA team thoroughly enjoyed coaching the three small groups of passionate young English cricketers and hopes to do further camps at some point in the future.
