CRICKET CLINICS

Objective

The cricket clinics serve as an opportunity for selected talented cricketers to enhance their skills and fitness levels through a structured programme compiled by professional cricket players. In addition, the clinics also seek to test and improve both physical and mental aspects of the players. The young cricketers have direct access to Temba and other professional coaches. The clinics also serve as a platform to provided coaches from the respective communities with skills development. The Foundation also uses the clinics as a platform to identity potential candidates for scholarships to our partner schools.
 

Highlights

We have successfully hosted five cricket clinics across Gauteng (including (including Soweto and Kagiso), focused on developing some of the basic and core skills required to be a well-rounded cricket player. Whilst the clinics are centered around cricket skills development, we strive to incorporate life skills coaching into the clinics. The Foundation has always been focused on the holistic development of the individual.

The team comprised of students from previously disadvantaged backgrounds across the country. Prior to the tournament, the students had never played together and faired exceptionally well amongst some of the top cricket schools in South Africa.
