The Under 19 Performance Squad Division is made up mostly of players who have played in the club’s Green Shield team and their priority is now their school sport and studies.
While School is obviously a priority it is our goal to keep these players within the Gordon “family” and provide high level skills training through specific sessions, matches against School and University teams and importantly through an invitation to join the Club’s training sessions on Tuesday’s and work with the first grade squad when available. They will also have access to sessions that include communications, team building, fitness and nutrition. While many of the Academies programs are free of charge through our sponsorship, a fee to cover costs only is agreed with this squad prior to starting.
Every opportunity is also made for these players to attend Grade Training sessions when time permits with their school responsibilities. We want these Academy members to feel they are part of the club.
The Under 19 Program includes the following:
- Sessions with the Club’s senior coaches,
- Matches against School teams,
- Inter academy matches,
- A session with First Grade,
- A special weekend session with centre wicket and team building and tactics presentations
The Under 19 Academy sessions will start in the new cricket season to not interfere with other school sport commitments.
The Under 19 members will be invited to join the Academy prior to the start of the new season
