We are delighted to announce our next cricket coaching tour to the Karnataka Institute of Cricket (KIOC) in Bangalore during the February Half Term holiday in 2015 (12th to 22nd February).
We have established a very good working relationship with KIOC and have had several successful tours there in the last few years. The cricketers who have toured there previously have all given very positive feedback and some of the players have progressed enormously as a result of their time in Bangalore.
Our very own Sonia has toured and been training there for the past four years and it has helped her progress and achieve her ultimate goal of playing for England.
Aadil Ali who has now earned himself a full time contract with Leicestershire has spent time at KIOC. William Hunt, currently playing in Australia, has toured on three occasions and other players such as Ben Coddington (the youngest player to score a century in the Leicestershire & Rutland Premier League at the age of 15), Janak Valand (MCC young cricketer) and many others have gained invaluable experience touring KIOC.
Experience of touring and playing in a foreign country on different pitches alongside quality local youngsters is something unique. It certainly helps the overall development of cricketers and also helps them to become responsible young individuals.
On Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th November we will be available to discuss the details of this exciting tour and will be able to provide further information to you and your parents. The meetings will take place at the City Cricket Academy from 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm.
We are very selective in partnering with foreign institutions and are proud to say that our relationship with both the ICC in Dubai and the KIOC in Bangalore has been extremely beneficial for players’ development.
