We are delighted to announce the launch of the
TCA SPIN BOWLING ACADEMY
A unique coaching program for up and coming spin bowlers…
Since opening The Cricket Asylum in 2012 we have had an amazing number of talented young spinners through our doors from across the country, with our spin specialist Chris Schofield leading the way in developing this talent. We’ve seen chinamen, leggies, doosras and good old fashioned accurate off spin on show! So with many good young spinners around why are there so few playing high level senior cricket, first class cricket and international cricket??
We believe the all round development of these spinners is desperately lacking through the transition into senior Cricket and beyond. The TCA Spin Bowling Academy has been setup to fix this issue for just 8 young players! The program is year round designed to guide you through the 2018 season and continue development leading up to the 2019 season.
We know you have the talent, but have you got what it takes to go all the way? If you’re between 14 and 19 (and a spin bowler obvs) you can apply to attend trials for The TCA Spin Bowling Academy.
