AFCA Testimonials & Parent feedback
Thank you so much for Ben’s report. He is absolutely delighted with it, as are we. I am sure he will attend next time.
Both of my lads have played 3 games since returning from AFCA and the whole club can see a vast improvement. They are both much more controlled in their batting and bowling. I just wanted the whole staff to know what a great job they were doing.
Hakim had a wonderful time at the cricket academy and I am sure we will do it again! Thank you to the team for making it such a fun week.
Our boys enjoyed the cricket very much thanks. Their only complaint was "more please" !
Thank you - Alexander loved the week and has already asked when your Easter course is.
My son Marc Anthony attended the Andrew Flintoff Academy last week and enjoyed it very much along with the previous Academy (Primrose Hill). The coaches, Alex and Chris were really good with the children, fun and good motivators. My sons performance and potential has also improved due to the training methods used. The coaches also wouldn't stand for any minor nonsense that the odd child may cause in order for everyone to enjoy the course, so please pass on my thanks to them and also thank you for the course and at least it kept my son off the playstation for a week!!!!
I am writing to thank you and congratulate you on running a fabulous cricket week at Ratcliffe last week. My son really enjoyed it and learnt a lot; I thought the staffing and the tuition were excellent, and the time taken out to do a report on each child was very helpful in their future development.
My son Daniel attended the Academy at Kirkham Grammar School. He thoroughly enjoyed it and it was very well run. Many thanks to your team and in particular to the Coaches running the Academy. They were all very professional and Daniel had fun and leaned a lot along the way.
My grandson, Callum, had the benefit of attending the Andrew Flintoff Academy held at the Amesbury School in August. I would like to put on record how pleased I was with the excellent standard of coaching he received. The trainers had an excellent rapport with the children and inspired in them a love of cricket. Callum cannot wait to attend the academy next year.
The staff were brilliant all really enthusiastic. I thought the course was the best course Ted has been on to date, very professionally run - in short bloody great - and Ted loved it!!!
You asked for feedback, unfortunately I cannot give any ground for improvement, the venue was excellent, the coaches were very enthusiastic. I think the children are the best people to evaluate these courses and all I can say is my daughter Poppy came home buzzing every night and could not wait for the next days session. She has already advised me that she will be attending next years course.
I wanted to let you know what a FANTASTIC experience the cricket academy was! My 12 year old son Edgar had a marvellous time - the coaches were warm, kind, fun and knew their cricket! To have Freddie visit on the last day capped an excellent week and he cannot wait to go again next year.
Joe absolutely loved the whole experience. The registration process and admin was excellent. The actual academy provided a great learning experience for the children. In particular I would like to thank his coaches who clearly gave the boys lots of encouragement and confidence and helped them to enjoy their time.
I just wanted to say that my son had such a great day today at The Andrew Flintoff Cricket Academy at Shrewsbury School – thank you! He is absolutely cricket mad and is now desperate for the Easter holidays so that he can go again!
My son David has just finished his week at RGS Worcester and I just wanted to say that he has had a really fabulous time. Olivia and David have been fantastic coaches and he has thoroughly enjoyed all the activities with them and meeting Aftab Habib yesterday. He is very pleased with his progress and has already asked to sign up again for next year!
Just a note to say how much Harry Watts enjoyed his time on the course - he seemed to learn alot and is already looking forward to the course next year which is very unlike him! He obviously thought a great deal of his coaches and I would like to thank them for their efforts- it was appreciated!
The team headed by "Pottsy"!! and his team coach Dean have been wonderful. I admit I was a little dubious at first but the week has just got better and better and Edgar has had the best birthday week of all. Tomorrow's visit by Freddie will cap of a smashing week and I felt it important to offer this positive feedback. He will be back next year.
I just wanted to acknowledge what a great week my son Olly had last week at Kirkham! The guys and girls that coached the children were excellent. Olly had a great time and is full of renewed enthusiasm and excitement for the game. He has been practising his new skills and has taken notice of all the advice given!!! (Miraculous!). We will certainly book on again, please pass our thanks on to all the coaches and their professionalism, expertise and patience!!
Last summer my son attended your academy in Oundle. I kept meaning to phone or write to say a huge thanks for such a brilliant course you ran. He absolutely loved it and the thorough and detailed report your trainer wrote was amazing – really well thought out, kind, interesting and useful. I can’t believe he had spent so much time and thought on it. Leonie McCarthy
Thank you for a fantastic course last week. The feedback from all the boys and their parents has been extremely positive and the report card is a great idea. Ben's bowling is now proving v effective as he took 5 wickets this weekend and he top scored for his school today!
I watched a hour or so of the last session and thought the whole set up was very professional, and by the end of the week, all the boys, even the shy ones were obviously really enjoying it, and will have got a lot out of it. Well done and thanks!
What a fantastic 3 days my children have had at Oundle. They have come home each night full of it and exhausted! The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. I am so thrilled that I found out about your set up as you have now sorted all my holiday worries out knowing that my children are safe and having a great time.
