Additional Coaching

Year-round Coaching

The Julian Wood Cricket Academy operates throughout the entire 12-months of the year! The majority of our coaching takes place within the school term-time calendar, however additional courses operate throughout the school holidays too. Catering for all ages (5-upwards) and abilities, coaching can be arranged on a group basis or via one-on-one sessions in order to develop the skills required at the highest possible cricketing level.

One-to-one Coaching

We offer talented and aspiring youngsters an unrivaled opportunity to develop their cricket during the off-season.This highly intensive programme will include video analysis and is specific to YOUR needs.

We believe that a period of between 4 - 10 sessions for players to grasp new perspectives in technique from the JWCA is sufficient time to learn, analyse and practice new learnt skills.

The Power Hitting Academy: By strict invitation only

The exciting new way to increase your batting skills, that extra bullett in your gun.  Learn with the same drills and excersises as the England T20 squad, Gloucstershire CCC, Glamorgan CCC, Hampshire CCC and many more.

Emerging Player Programme (EPP)

Julian Wood has put together an emerging player programme (EPP) for young players (7yrs - 14yrs)

The tendancy in the UK is to stick to the norm, but Cricket as a game is changing all the time, and we have to change with it , otherwise we will  get left behind.  There is no hiding the fact that T20 is here to stay so we have to start coaching players from a young age who have a talent for the game to throw a little caution to the wind, to show a little flair and imagination, obviously you need a good technique first, but why not produce players who throw with either hand and bat left and right handed. It is great for hand eye co-ordination as well as gaining confidence, it also encourages you to be a little unorthadox.

Woody has been working with his 4yr old son and is convinced that it can work.  If you get them early enough then it just becomes the norm with them.

Its time we started producing a different, modern player, for the ever changing face of cricket, it's time to BREAK THE MOULD...

The EPP is open to a maximum of 16 pupils by selection only.
