Pride of Lions coaching courses: Inspiring a new generation of cricketers.
The Surrey Cricket Foundation offers coaching throughout the year for children 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 core skills and game based situations, each course will teach your child something new.
Our core programme takes place from September to March across 7 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.
• Christmas Holiday – Looking for plans for your child this Christmas break? Look no further! A great way to expend some energy ahead of the visit from Father Christmas, our sessions are aimed at all abilities and will cover a range of skills and small-sided games aimed at developing skills and maximising enjoyment. Not only a great chance to work on cricket skills over winter, the courses act as an ideal opportunity for parents to escape for some last-minute Christmas shopping!
• 10-week Post-Christmas – From January 2019, the 10-week courses go again into the New Year. Including the same good content, such as great player to coach ratios, end of course reports and talent ID for Surrey CCC, the course will allow your child to continuously work on their skills and technique to ensure they never miss a beat come the start of the 2019 season!
• The Pro Package – The first of its kind within Surrey, we are excited to release the Pro Package – a more intense cricket coaching course designed to get the absolute best out of your son or daughter. Taking place over 10 weeks from the end of January, the course aims to put your child at the centre of the course content by introducing a 1:4 coach to player ratio, video analysis, 1:1 coaching, written reports and talent identification.
