ICC academy to hold cricket coaching programs
Dubai, March 1, 2010
The ICC Global Cricket Academy, in partnership with Dubai Sports City, will launch its junior cricket coaching programmes on March 6 in Dubai and March 12 in Abu Dhabi.
The 10-week junior coaching programme will allow children aged 5-12 years to develop their skills, under the tutorship of internationally qualified and experienced staff.
Top coaches include director of Coaching at ICC Global Cricket Academy, and ex-Australian cricketer, Rod Marsh, plus the Academy’s head coaches Mudassar Nazar and Dayle Hadlee.
“Cricket is among the top sports played in the UAE, and following the recent success of the Twenty20 international cricket matches held in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, there has been even greater interest from youngsters to learn the basic skills of the game,” said Marc Archer, general manager, ICC Global Cricket Academy.
“Our coaches have been very involved with local schools, and children have responded extremely well to our programmes. This has given us the opportunity to launch a junior coaching programme that UAE youngsters of all abilities can take part in,” added Rod Marsh, director of Coaching at ICC Global Cricket Academy.-TradeArabia News Service
