The TVC Academy goes from strength to strength. New talent is being identifed all the time.
Well done to Alfie, Louis, Jack, Will, Matt, Joseph, James F, Taine, Kieran, John, Elliott and James I for being successful at the Berks trials and are now winter training with their appropriate age groups.
In the summer, the academy train on Monday nights at Cookham Dean Cricket:
In the winter we train at Altwood School. New 2nd venue - Claires Court School!
Our full academy sessions are invite only. New players are invited to come for a trial session.
Please register your interest as places are limited. If successful, cricketers will be invited to join the full Academy.
All Academy players will be given the opportunity to wear a quality TVC Academy Cricket Shirt and must wear this shirt when training. We believe this encourages academy unity, comfort and provides a professional platform for players to develop in.
Sessions are run in blocks of 8 weeks and cost £100 per block. There is a one off joining fee of £20.
Our Mini Academy
Our "Mini academy" is extremely popular. We run two separate sessions:
Our summer programme starts on Fri 23RD April at Cookham Dean Cricket Club.
Under 5's (reception)
Under 6's (year one)
45 minute session running between 3.45pm and 5.15pm.
10 week course at £90 INCLUDES FREE MINI CRICKET BAT. And use of the facilities / nets / bar at Cookham Dean Cricket Club.
Run by Academy Director, Jon Stewart, with his enthusiastic and friendly style, children of all abilities will have an 45 minues of soft ball fun. During each session, players will go through a series of 4 or 5 cricket based stations or challenges with an excellent ratio of coaches to players. They will be kept fully engaged at all times, and will be constantly moving, throwing, catching, bowling and batting. Children are kept very well entertained for 45 mins whilst learning the basics of the game. There are always plenty of high 5s, smiles and some prizes too! We hope it gives the children a great first impression of the game. Being part of our mini cricket programme automatically guarantees a place for your child in the first true age group (U7s) in the main colts section at Cookham Dean Cc come the appropriate time.
Girls participation in the sport is really growing and last year, girls accounted for 25% of the places in the mini academy. We hope to grow on that in 2019.
Please register your interest for our no obligation taster session on Fri 23rd April.
