Forget that summer - winter could be prime time for cricket

After a junior cricket season badly hit by the awful whether, LCA Cricket Coaching are offering the chance for young players to catch up on the missed opportunities from the summer.

The courses will be run by level-three coach Rob Maier, who has worked locally with Chichester Priory Park and Middleton as well as representing his native South Africa at international level.

He will work alongside other experienced coaches from West Sussex and Hampshire to ensure every child benefits from the course in the ten weeks leading up to Christmas.

Maier said: “This is one of the best times of the year for youngsters to make meaningful changes to certain parts of their game. I would urge all keen cricketers to come and attend and enjoy this brilliant opportunity.”

All courses will run at Bishop Luffa School priced at £89.99, with a maximum of 20 places available.

Times: Wednesday U12 (ages 8-12) Winter Academy 6pm-7.30pm; Wednesday U16 (ages 13-16) Winter Academy 7pm–9pm; Friday U12 (ages 8-12) Winter Academy 6pm-7.30pm; Friday U16 (ages 13-16) Winter Academy 7.30pm-9pm.
