Junior Player Development Programme

The NECA Junior Player Development Programme consists of 10 x 90 minute sessions (75 minute sessions for U7 & U9 children) specifically designed to challenge and improve young players who have ambition to play higher level cricket within their respective age range or indeed beyond.

The programme is designed by South Northumberland Director of Coaching Steve Chapman and supporting Level ECB 1, 2, 3 or 4 coaches will offer a diverse range of specific skills coaching to compliment the skills the players already acquired by each player.

Players can expect a maximum of 25 attendees (40 attendees for U7's & U9's) on their respective age range course, which will ensure a low player / coach ratio to optimize player contact time.

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

  • Video analysis throughout the course to offer immediate feedback, which will provide maximum scope to learn

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

  • Strength & Conditioning aspect weekly

  • Bola Ball Machines

  • Courses are open to boys and girls
