Gary Kirsten Cricket (GKC) is all set for another High Performance roadshow in the Netherlands later this month.

The project is a continuation from last year’s visit where the team worked with up and coming Dutch players.

Kirsten will accompany GKC Coaching Director, Ryan Van Niekerk and Head Coach Ryan Cook for the one week long programme.

Prior to the programme getting underway, Cook and Van Niekerk will work with six youngsters on a one-on-one basis.

“These players have been hand selected by the Dutch and we are looking forward to putting them through their paces,” Van Niekerk said.

“Once Gary arrives in Amsterdam we will then begin the full programme,” he added.

Van Niekerk says their goal is to help build a cricketing culture in the country as the Dutch strive towards an international test playing status.

“We will pick up from our last visit and focus on both the long and short formats. We will also look at mental strategy and tactics,” Van Niekerk revealed.

It is another opportunity for GKC to spread its wings beyond South African borders having worked in countries like England, India, UAE and Mauritius over the years.

“It means we continue our push to being one of the best cricket businesses in the world. It is about gaining recognition in the international coaching space,” Van Niekerk said.

“We are on the edge of building a global brand. Our aim is to always deliver a quality product,” he concluded.

The programme will take place at the picturesque, VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen.
