FAQs

Q?

What is the difference between an annual program and a seasonal program?

A.

A) Annual program runs all through the year and it is 40 weeks long. It helps the player to get entrenched in the game and to the coaching philosophy. Sustained learning helps players to explore the multi-faceted aspects of the game and help them master it.

B) Seasonal program starts and ends within a season. Fall starts end of September and ends by Thanksgiving. Spring starts in March and finishes by May etc. This is to accommodate advanced students as well as beginners who want to wet their feet and observe how they express themselves through the game, prior to enrolling in the annual program.

Q?

My kid is __ years old. Which program is the better one for him/her?

A.

Our learning is not age based but skill based. The reason we have a general age group category is to ensure peer level learning, however the skills are what bring the players together.

Q?

My kid has no prior sports experience. What age do you need to start cricket?

A.

We recommend starting the sport at the age of 5. At that age, as the kids are developing, we help them enjoy the game and have fun as they learn the rules and the non-physical aspects of the game. As they grow, the learning helps them to rapidly progress into the next levels. But the emphasis is on enjoying the game and injury prevention at this age.

Q?

What will my kid get to learn if he/she just participated in one seasonal program camp?

A.

Each camp focuses on the basics and familiarizes the game to the kids. You can be assured that the early stages of the game are properly introduced to the player. But for sustained learning of the game, it is recommended that kids join the annual program.

Q?

My kid wants to continue learning cricket. What is the pathway for him?

A.

The best pathway for a continued learning is to be part of the annual cricket program. Cricket is 80% mental game and 20% is muscle memory. We bring both aspects of the game through continued learning. Imagine you've learnt math last time in kinder garden and 10 years later, you are given an advanced Algebra 2 problem, and you won't be able to solve it. But continued learning prepares them to face any situation. Cricket, in this sense, mirrors life.

Q?

Will my kid need to bring his cricketing gear?

A.

Yes, safety is the top most priority for our academy. The philosophy that the coach follows requires that the kids bring their own cricketing gear and we've even made it available for you locally. Please contact the coach directly for further details.

Q?

How should my son maintain/improve his diet, while playing cricket?

A.

Growing kids should follow all the dietary requirements recommended by the doctor but aspiring crickets should not only stay away from junk but also ensure that they have a healthy balanced diet. 2 bananas a day and 3 glasses of 2% milk at the very minimum is a must. A healthy spread of protein and vegetables is a must. Coach's continued observation will unearth the dietary patterns for the cricketers and he will ensure that they follow the regimen.
