Elite Player Development Programme

The NECA Elite Player Development Programme consists of 10 x 2 hour sessions specifically designed to challenge and improve young players who have already played or are ready to play representative cricket.

The programme is headed by South Northumberland Cricket Club's Director of Coaching and supporting Level ECB 2, 3 or 4 coaches will offer a diverse range of specific skills coaching alongside their own high level playing experience.

Players can expect a maximum of 25 high-level attendees on their respective age group course, which will ensure a low player to coach ratio to optimise player contact time:

  • 20 hours of net time & skills coaching covering all aspects of the game

  • Modern drills and practice methods as used by many current First Class Players

  • Strength & Conditioning built into the programme

  • Use of Bola Ball Machines

As part of the programme, attendees will receive a booklet that covers the following areas:

Diet & Nutrition

Goal Setting & Planning

Game Sense & Tactics

  • Can diet help my performance?

  • Are there foods I should avoid eating?

  • Why is hydration so important?

  • Why is setting goals important?

  • How do I manage them?

  • Are there different types of goals?

  • How can I set attacking fields?
  • Where can I get a game plan for batting?
  • How do I know if I'd be a good captain?

This booklet will offer every young player an insight into how they can develop different aspects of their cricket and gain positive results using methods other than regular bat and ball practice.
