CRICKET COACHING COURSES

Pride of Lions coaching courses: Inspiring a new generation of cricketers!

The Surrey Cricket Foundation offers coaching throughout the year for boys and girls in Reception to Year 11 at multiple locations across Surrey and South London with the aim of inspiring a lifelong passion for the game. Focusing on developing a range of core cricketing skills in a fun, challenging and exciting environment, each course will help your child to develop their game, whether a beginner or seasoned player.

Our core programme takes place from September to March across 8 venues ensuring that wherever you are based, there will be a Pride of Lions course local to you. In addition to this, we run holiday courses during Easter, May half-term and the summer school holidays. We also run courses on the famous Kia Oval outfield to give your child an experience they will never forget.

The courses also form part of Surrey County Cricket Club’s Performance Pathway with the most talented children being identified to move across into Performance courses and in some cases County Age Group cricket. We have a number of graduates from the programme who now play for Surrey such as Rory Burns, Ollie Pope, Ryan Patel and Arun Harinath. So who knows? Your son or daughter could go on to play for Surrey as a result of attending a Pride of Lions course.

Available to book now:

T20 Masterclass at the Kia Oval – Taking place during the final stages of this season’s Vitality T20 Blast we are running a T20 focused Masterclass at the Kia Oval on Sunday 1st September aimed at boys and girls in Years 4-11. So if your young aspiring cricketer wants to work on their reverse sweeps, scoop shots, slower balls or death bowling this is the course for them! Years 4-6 will take place from 10am-1pm with the Years 7-11 taking place from 2-5pm.

• Summer Courses – The summer camps are a great way to extend your cricket season and have a great time with your friends. Over the 4 days the course will cover all areas of the game and will include plenty of game time opportunities during the week as well. If you love cricket this is the course for you and this year we have extended days with the course running from 9am-4.30pm each day! Available for Years 2-9 in Guildford and at Wallington Grammar School.

• Hallowed Turf – This is your son or daughter’s chance to follow in the footsteps of the Surrey and England stars by gracing the Hallowed Turf of the Kia Oval this Summer. The courses will cover a range of skills and games and will be delivered by fully trained and vetted coaches who will deliver an experience to remember. Courses are available for boys and girls in Reception to Year 6 and take place on Saturday 20th July and Sunday 25th August.

• Pre Christmas Courses – Our 10 week Pre Christmas Coaching Programme takes place at 8 venues across Surrey and is aimed at boys and girls in Reception to Year 11. The courses are open to all ability levels and work on a planned coaching ratio of 1 coach to every 6 children. Players (Year 2 upwards) receive a written report at the end of the programme and the most talented young players are put forward to the Performance Department.

• Pre Christmas Pro Package – The Pro Package is offered at 4 of our venues across Surrey and is aimed at aspiring young cricketers in Years 7-11. The Pro Package course aims to bridge the gap between group coaching and 1 to 1 coaching through its fantastic coach to player ratios. With 1 coach to every 4 players the course will enable lots of small group coaching sessions to take place. Furthermore each player is allocated a coach to work with closely throughout the programme enabling regular and direct feedback on performance. During the course all players will receive a log book where they can track their progress towards their own specific goals as players. Players will also benefit from 1-2-1 mini sessions during the programme as well as video feedback on performance. This is a great course for players really interested in developing their own games ahead of the 2020 season!
