Registration for ICC Academy’s The Warriors programme opens

Dec 10 2017

The International Cricket Council Academy, Dubai Sports City, have declared the registration for the second Term of its flagship coaching programme, The Warriors, open.

Commencing on January 9, 2018, players who sign up to the fifteen-week programme will receive a blend of coaching, physical preparation and game-play, under the guidance of ICC Academy’s internationally qualified Level 3 and Level 4 coaching staff. In addition, every player will receive a full set of training kit, a workbook, regular feedback from their coaches, eligibility for selection in the Warriors teams and Emerging Player Programme and a 50% off voucher for a 1-1 training session.

ICC Academy Head of Cricket Development and Level 4 coach, Qasim Ali, commented: “The first Term of the new season of the Warriors programme has been incredibly successful and we’ve had over 400 players working with our coaches on a weekly basis.”

As part of the ICC Academy’s commitment to developing the next generation of cricket stars, 10 young players were chosen to take part in the programme and were awarded a full, one-year scholarship at the ICC Academy. This included three training sessions a week at the academy based in Dubai Sports City, full access to its world-class facilities, including the Powerbase gym, and professional coaching and mentoring by highly trained ICC Academy staff.

After undergoing two days of rigorous trials and competing with over 200 participants, these 10 developing players aged 13-17 years old have been honing their skills at the world-class facility this past season and will be continuing their development throughout term 2.
