SURREY CRICKET COACHING COURSES

Many of the past and present professional players and coaching staff of Surrey County Cricket Club started their cricketing careers by attending one of the Club’s Junior Coaching Courses before progressing through district, county age group and academy cricket. Current Surrey and England players Stuart Meaker and Jade Dernbach both attended Club courses and graduated from the Surrey Pemberton Greenish Academy.

As well as being a large part of the county’s talent identification process these courses provide all players aged 3-16 the opportunity to improve their game technically, tactically, physically and mentally in an enjoyable and friendly environment. Run by teams of highly experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and qualified coaches at venues around Surrey the Junior Coaching Courses are a fantastic way to either introduce your son or daughter to the game or continue their development as a player.
