Who is AFCA for?

AFCA is for boys and girls aged between 5-16 years old. Whether its your first experiences of cricket or you are a representative player, you will have fun, improve and be challenged on the Academy. 

The Freddie Juniors (5-7 year olds) have their own programme which establishes the fundamentals of cricket and sport in general. We understand the different needs of this age range and this is reflected in the curriculum which has shorter sessions, cricket related skills in a wider context and the need for high and lower intensity activities. In addition the Freddie Juniors programme will incorporate more multi faceted activities in the afternoon sessions, these may include arts and crafts, as well as more multi activity games and play sessions.

Our Freddie Seniors (8-16) enjoy learning new skills in all cricketing disciplines of batting, bowling and fielding. Our themed sessions encourage a focus on achievement with plenty of opportunities to put skills into action through small-sided games and middle practices.
