Winterprogramma 2016-2017 Jeugd

Kampong Winter Academy 2016 / 2017 - Training Plan


The Kampong  Winter Academy  for 2016 / 2017 will run in three stages:

1.Pre Christmas - 20th and 27th November; 4th, 11th and 18th December 

2. New Year - 15th, 22nd and 29th January; 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th February

3. Flamingo Tournament in March with a possible session IF there is a free day.

The Academy will be based at the Galgenwaard Sports Hall and the sessions will run from 14.00 to 15.30 for U10 / U12 and from 15.30 until 17.00 for U14 / U16. There will also be an additional hour until 18.00 for a selected group to focus on fitness, conditioning and technical skills.

An Academy is a place of learning: Young players need to learn the skills and technicalities of the game - when that is achieved, they can practice what they have learned

What will the sessions include?

Each session will begin with a warm up circuit or exercise: This is extremely important for young players  with growing bones and muscles, added to which no sport can be played to its fullest capacity without physical fitness, balance and good co-ordination.

Each session will include a fielding skill element. This may be included in the warm up or it may be a separate item in the programme. Irrespective of whether a player is a good batsman or a good bowler, being a good fielder is essential to being a team player.

Each session will also include a batting or bowling skill element. Learning and perfecting a batting shot is best done with throw-downs as practically every ball is hittable - more balls received, more learning!  Bowling skills will be with a hard ball in the nets (except under 10's)

Each session will finish with either a match situation in the nets where 'Out is Out' OR a game with the skills of that session built into it. There is not enough time to do both in every session. Hard balls can ONLY be used in the nets and so games will be played with a plastic ball.

The Participants:

Running as a thread through all sessions will be respect  for the players by the coaches, respect for the coaches from players and parents and also  respect for other participants .

Participants are expected to arrive 15 minutes before the start time of a session. This ensures that no session time is wasted. They should also advise a coach if they cannot make a session.

The Coaches:

Peter Cantrell, Mike Farrant and Sean Trouw assisted by young Kampong 1st team players
