The Emerging Players Programme is an annual coaching programme looking to give 13 to 16 year old boys and girls, with potential for playing First Class Cricket, additional coaching, equipping them to progress. This coaching programme is fully funded by Cornwall Cricket Board.
The EPP programme will have two sessions a week, over the winter at the Cornwall Cricket Centre, including indoor training and strength and conditioning specific to the player’s needs. During the summer the coaching will take place at Redruth Cricket Club. The coaches will invite players to take part in a schedule of activity linked strongly to a personal development plan. This will also include an individual match programme which Head Coach Peter Bolland will manage, linked to county, club and school matches. Peter will also be responsible for observing up-coming talent, communicating to key partners, the Cornwall Cricket Board, Cornwall Schools’ Cricket Association, age group managers and coaches, Cornwall Coaches’ Association, as well as club coaches and school teaching staff.
