We understand what is required at every level and age to have fun and deliver a stimulating, challenging and exciting coaching and activity programme.
Every day the children will take part in a batting, bowling and fielding technical sessions, delivered in fun, engaging and challenging methods.
Our afternoons are tactical and game-play based sessions including middle practices, net scenarios, TGFUs (Teaching Games for Understanding) and small sided matches.
Each group's curriculum is age/ability related and players may be moved to different groups to be challenged appropriately.
The BLAST! Coaching Programme follows a similar pattern to AFCA, including a technical session each day on batting, bowling and fielding with tactical and game-play throughout the day.
After setting the foundations, the BLAST! technical sessions will focus on modern techniques used in Twenty20 cricket including the ramp shot, boundary hitting, boundary catching, Yorker bowling and much more!
Freddie Flintoff is a unique cricketer and person who plays the game with passion, heart and enthusiasm. These qualities are essential for any potential AFCA coach or manager. The Academies offer a unique cricketing experience and develops individual cricketers to do this with a big smile on their face. The Academy creates an environment where children can learn by having fun and the freedom to express themselves as cricketers. The aim of the Academy is to not only coach children but also inspire them.
All our coaches are ECB qualified and all staff are DBS checked. All staff also go through our in-house training to deliver 'The Freddie Way' which is certified by IIRSM.
We take our responsibilities for the care of each child at our camps very seriously. This page is designed to provide all necessary and useful information for parents; from the timings of a typical day to our booking terms and conditions.
