Cricket School of Excellence 2014

The Inaugural Cricket School of Excellence is now open for Registration!

Phoenix Cricket Club has launched a significant initiative targeted at cricket loving boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 14.  It is open to all interested children with a discount for Phoenix members.

A programme of structured coaching for technique as well as game management is prepared for children to get significant time with bat and ball this summer.

Top Leinster coach Matt Lunson, who leads the Coaching Programme, states:

“This new initiative created by the Phoenix Club is a superb opportunity for kids to make real and tangible improvements in their cricketing abilities.  There will be over 12 hours of organised sesssions each week, using the full facilities at Phoenix, including the bowling machine, centre wicket and nets, concentrating on both skill development and game management.  I will be supported this summer by Phoenix Club Professional, ‘Lucky’ Peterson, an exciting young talent from Australia.  In addition, special invited guest coaches will attend to lead master classes in Seam bowling, spin bowling, batting and keeping……….A superb opportunity, don’t miss it and register early!”

Club President Michael Brown who has masterminded the revival of the youth development at Phoenix, confirms:

“I have long wanted to see Phoenix as not just a Community Club for all to enjoy their cricket, but also a Club which is a centre of cricketing excellence, for the most aspiring and ambitious young cricket talent. Because we have put together a top level coaching structure, I am keen to invite young people from other Club’s to attend this summer programme.  So if you are ambitious in cricket come and join us, and bring your new improved skills back to your clubs.”

The cost of the programme is €360 for 6 weeks during the summer holidays, starting Tuesday July 8th.  There is a 20% discount for current Phoenix members.
