Team Introduction

Kent Cricket Academy Programme, sponsored by Kent Reliance

Kent County Cricket Club has operated a successful Academy since it was launched in 2003.

Joe Denly, Lydia Greenway, Alex Blake, Sam Northeast, Matthew Coles, Sam Billings, Adam Riley, Adam Ball and Daniel Bell-Drummond are just a few of our graduates.

Our vision is to be recognised as the benchmark Academy for developing “first class quality” cricketers in England.

The Programme takes a holistic view of the development of the individual with particular emphasis on the following five key areas: Technical, Tactical, Physical, Mental and Lifestyle.

These areas will be addressed over a twelve month period in the following three modules:

Module 1:      Assessment - October to December.  Complete a rigorous series of assessments to establish the basis    for the individually tailored development programme.

Module 2:      Preparation - January to April.  Provide a comprehensive preparation programme to ensure each player has the best opportunity to succeed in the performance module.

Module 3:      Performance - May to September.  Agree, coordinate and monitor an individual performance programme for each player where they have the opportunity to realise potential at the appropriate level.
