Home / A-Star Cricket Academy

A-Star Cricket’s Academy is the ultimate program for enhancing cricket performance and technique in children. We aim to develop confident, creative and well-balanced cricketers in a healthily challenging environment.

Our cricket program is accessible, fun and takes inspiration from the latest innovations in coaching within both the cricketing world and from broader global sports. The focus is on technical development so A-Star Cricket maximises coaching time, but we also place an emphasis on essential life skills such as good sportsmanship, respect and an appreciation for the benefits of a strong work ethic.

We cater to cricket-loving kids aged between 5 and 18 by adding value to the coaching they may already receive at a club or school. A-Star Cricket sees its role as facilitating the step up from intermediate to a higher level of performance.

Sessions run weekly all year, split into three distinct phases: off-season, pre-season and in-season. Sessions take place weekly and last 90 minutes each. Our cricket academy is affordable and delivered in a variety of venues.
