It was great to have our first contact of the year with Hampton Junior Cricket Club in Victoria!
Coming on as one of our Club Assist partners after a successful relationship last year the ACI kickstarted their season with a 3 day skill development camp for their junior members.
With a whopping 26 or more junior teams, running a club just from volunteers can be a mammoth task and that's why we are extremely keen and excited to formalise this relationship for season 22/23 and hopefully beyond.
The 3 days saw over 80 young and enthusiastic cricketers kicking off their season down at their cricket club learning some critical skills that will put them in good stead for a successful season.
Over the season Hampton CC will have support with their volunteer coaches being provided with access to their own age specific coach assist platform. This app developed by the Australian Cricket Institute provides their coaches with done for them, 16 week 1 - 1.5 hour sessions all planned out ready to go. Accompanied by a session plan ready to download to their phone and every single drill supported with video examples of drills and activities ensuring that all volunteer coaches no matter how experienced they may be the support and inspiration to be able to provide fun and engaging sessions for these young players all season long.
We are looking forward to a wonderful and successful season with Hampton CC and are already planning the Dec/January holiday period for our clinics which will see Hampton CC in full flight again.
