Derbyshire County Cricket Club Academy will be stepping up their preparations for the 2023 season by completing a six (6) day warm weather pre-season training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground and Academy between Friday 10th – Wednesday 15th February 2023.
Following their victory in the Desert Springs European T20 2022, Derbyshire CCC Academy will undertake a training camp that will comprise six (6) players and three (3) coaches, all of whom will be spending their time completing a specific and carefully planned programme of numerous training sessions each day covering technical skills, bowling and batting, strength and conditioning and both individual and group activity.
Daryn Smit, Derbyshire CCC Head of Talent Pathway commented on the teams experience in 2022;
“It was brilliant. We really enjoyed it.
The weather was fantastic, the facilities were great, and the food kept the boys well fuelled with lots of energy. We came away with a lot of experience and a lot of good learning to take into our winter preparation and summer season.”
Grass net practice will take place at the Cricket Academy. Match simulations, strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.
The players and coaches will be accommodated in some of the privately-owned Villas at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining in the Crocodile Club Restaurant
