Surrey County Cricket Club have selected Desert Springs Resort to be the base for their Academy players to step up their preparations for the forthcoming 2019 season by completing a four (4) day warm weather training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground & Academy between Saturday 16th – Wednesday 20th February 2019.
The primary focus of the Surrey Academy & Performance Department is to promote the highest quality of performance on an individual and team basis in order to develop cricketers to play for Surrey and England.
The best players are then selected into the Pemberton Greenish Surrey CCC Academy from which 13 graduates are currently part of Surrey’s CCC professional staff.
The Surrey CCC Academy training camp will comprise eight (8) players between 16 – 19 years of age 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.
Grass net practice, both bowling and batting will take place at the Cricket Academy. Strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.
