The Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy (TMGA) today announced the schedule for the Summer Cricket Coaching Camps for 2019 to be held in May in Mumbai.
The curriculum for the camps has been developed jointly by Sachin Tendulkar and Middlesex County Cricket Club (MCCC) with an objective of providing the very best in cricket education.
The Camps will be held over four days each from May 2nd to May 5th at MIG Cricket Club, Bandra East and from May 9th to May 12th at DY Patil Sports Centre, Navi Mumbai. Under the watchful eyes of MCCC coaches and International players including Vinod Kambli, the camp provides young cricketers with a unique opportunity to experience world-class coaching from specialist coaches.
At both venues, the camps will have a morning session for cricketers between the ages of 7 to 12 years with 13 to 18 year old children attending an afternoon session.
Cricketers who performed exceptionally at the camps held last year are also being asked back to further enhance their cricketing skills and performance.
Youngsters with exceptional potential, who are unable to afford the camp fees, will be provided training free of cost.
Sachin Tendulkar said “Our whole ethos is to draw out and nurture the potential of talented young cricketers. I find it so exciting and rewarding to see them given an opportunity to further enhance their skills in all aspects of cricket. The camps last year had an overwhelming response with brilliant feedback from the children and their parents. I’m sure that this year’s camps will go even further in fostering and developing the immense young cricketing talent in this country.”
The TMGA Summer Cricket Camps, in collaboration with Bayside Sports, the delivery partner, are open to all boys and girls and will cover all aspects of the game including batting, bowling and fielding. Special attention will also be given to athletic development, sports psychology, and tactical development to further the children’s cricketing ability.
Last year saw a tremendous response to the Camps with registrations for each camp filling up quickly. More than 1,200 children attended the camps and they gave the camp an average rating of 4.8/5 in terms of overall coaching experience.
