Sydney Warriors Academy leads the way to develop cricket skills for younger generation 

By – Annupa Ahi

An aspiring young academy is working to open up avenues for talented players by providing overseas exposure and experience. The Sydney Warriors Academy (SWA) works closely with the Blacktown District Cricket Association, Kellyville Ridge Cricket Club and some renowned Cricket clubs in India- namely Aditya Birla Academy (Mumbai), DY Patil Academy, Parsee Gymkhana to provide a good cricket experience for our young and aspiring players.

The focus of the overseas tours is to provide a total cultural experience, in addition to developing cricket skills.

The Academy plans to organise similar programs in near future and the planning is underway for trips to Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur. The Academy has finalised reciprocal arrangements with some of the cricket clubs overseas and plans to organise sport camps/ clinics for overseas players in Sydney. This in turn will be promoting Australia as a tourist destination.

The Academy is working closely with BCDCA (Blacktown Dist. Cricket Association) to develop specialist programs for cricketers across all ages, who are keen to develop their game during the off season

The April 2016 trip to Mumbai was a great success, with the boys getting an opportunity to play against the top clubs and academies of Mumbai. Some memorable games were played at famous ground of Mumbai such as the DY Patil Stadium and MIG Bandra ground (home to Sachin Tendulkar). The boys were enthralled playing a game with Sachin’s son Arjun Tendulkar!

The boys had the opportunity to attend the Mumbai IPL Team training at the Wankhede stadium and watch them play IPL game at the same stadium. They were fortunate to meet up with many players and have photograph opportunity with them

With great support from sponsors (Ettamogah Pub, Orange Sports, The Chocolate room), the Academy was able to cater to some of its tour expenses. SWA welcomes the support of local businesses to run similar successful trips.
