A key part of the highly successful cricket programme at Hampton is our Cricket Academy, available to all school cricketers in the Autumn and Spring Terms, and also the one-to-one coaching offered to all boys throughout the year.
The Hampton Cricket Academy
The Hampton Cricket Academy operates in the Autumn Term and aims to help the more advanced cricketers in the school (in any age group) to become significantly better players. It has been a huge success and the progress made by those who have attended has been very much in evidence during the cricket season. Chris Harrison will run the sessions and will work with small groups on specialist skills.
The coaching will involve analysing technique and using video analysis and coaching expertise to improve it.
One to ones
These sessions are the best possible way to improve technique. They are run by Chris Harrison and last about one hour, during which time boys will be videoed and they will then watch and analyse the footage on a lap-top. The images can then be emailed to boys. Boys should sign up for these sessions on the sign-up sheet on the cricket notice board. The responsibility to sign up is solely the player’s and he should be aiming to attend several sessions during the course of this term. When selecting teams in the summer, we look favourably on boys who have made the effort to attend sessions during the winter. Sessions are free of charge.
