Academy Sessions

As well as one to one and small group coaching, we also run a Winter Cricket Academy on a Tuesday Evening at The Forest School, Winnersh. 

The Academy focuses on giving developing players the opportunity to train with likeminded peers in a progressive environment. Our coaching team includes Level 3 Performance Coaches, and coaches with playing experience at First Class Level.

More details of our Winter Academy dates will be released shortly.


One to One Cricket Coaching

No matter how many runs you score or wickets you take, improvements to your game will help to take you to the next level. Neal and his coaching team offer high quality one to one coaching for any player looking to improve their game, or just after a bit of added help.

We have a BOLA Pro Bowling Machine which can be used during training sessions to help hone your batting technique. Video Analysis is also available, and works as a great visual tool for players to understand their techniques.

During our sessions we have access to Video Analysis, Bowling Machines, Hand Speed and Bowling/Throwing Speed testing. Please contact us for details and prices.


Our prices include venue hire, bowling machine use, video analysis, post session email feedback and equipment. Level 2 Coaching starts at £35 per hour, Level 3 Coaching starts at £45 per hour. For prices please email

The programme is a blueprint that the coaches will work around depending on the development of the players. During each session the players will cover the technical aspects and go into drills, challenges and games to further draw out their learning.

NR Cricket are following on from their Winter Academy with our Spring Pre Season Sessions on Monday & Tuesday evenings at The Forest School in Winnersh.

The 10 hour long sessions will see players working in small groups with a Level 2 or above coach leading the session. The syllabus has been drawn up by Level 3 Coach Neal Robinson, and we work on a development programme to give players the tools to excel through the stages of cricket.

Our programme has identified the technical and tactical areas that players need to develop through their training, and our coaches are working in a structured manner to lay these building blocks.

Session times are:
U10-U12 years - 6-7pm
U13-U16 years - 7-8pm
