Dragons Online Cricket Academy

Basel Dragons Junior Cricket Club has announced an exciting development in Swiss cricket with the launching of the Dragons Online Cricket Academy.

Basel Dragons Online Academy

The academy is open to all the clubs in Switzerland, so that we can contribute to the upskilling of all our Swiss junior players.

The Online Cricket Academy will supplement on-the-ground coaching with various other aspects of cricket to help the comprehensive development of the players.

The idea is to provide the players with:

  • Motivation during these times of less matches and practices
  • Increased knowledge of cricket beyond the technical aspects of the game
  • Provide an additional cricketing touchpoint during the week

Past sessions

Run as a regular, ongoing series, topics covered in the sessions to date include:

  • Session 1: Tips for cricket training at home - exploring various cricket drills that can practised at home
  • Session 2: The Cricket Field - Orientation of the field (offside/leg-side, fielding positions etc...)
  • Session 3: Batting - Basel Dragon’s U13 coach Nitin concentrates on batting skills.
  • Session 4: Live with Scott Newman - Scott talks about his professional playing & coaching career and takes questions from the players
  • Session 5: Art of Captaincy with coach Jonty Acton
  • Session 6: Rules of Cricket by Michael Hall - including umpire signals etc.
  • Session 7: Bowling by Ramesh - An outline of the types of bowling, explanation of over and around the wicket etc.
  • Session 8: History of Cricket by Ed - Ed provides some context for the players on this great game we love
  • Session 9: Cricket by Numbers by Jason
  •  ..... If anyone has ideas for future sessions or content, please get in touch!

These follow up sessions will likely be during the week in the evening; date and schedule will be announced soon.
