Blues Cricket Academy Private Coaching
The Blues Cricket Academy is a Brisbane-based cricket academy, situated at the prestigious WEP Harris Oval at the University of Queensland Cricket Club, St Lucia. Operating from one of Brisbane’s premier cricket venues, the Blues Academy offers top quality facilities and coaches to provide the best possible experience for clients to improve and have fun in the process! We welcome players from all clubs, ages, skill levels and genders; the more people playing this great game, the better!
At the Blues Cricket Academy, we aim to promote a fun, relatable environment for players of all skill levels to enjoy and improve their cricket. We pride ourselves on delivering a timely and quality professional service, leading by example with the values we aim to instill in our players. We place a large focus on the basics of the game, aiming to produce fundamentally sound cricketers able to adapt to any format. Additionally, we aspire to promote well-rounded, independent-thinking cricketers, and we encourage them to use their skills to fulfill their potential on and off the field.
These sessions involve 1 hour one-on-one coaching and are often the most beneficial for aspiring cricketers. Individual sessions offer the opportunity for in-depth analysis and attention to detail, while also allowing for a higher volume of quality content during sessions.
4 sessions, $80.00 per session = $320.00
2 sessions, $80.00 per session = $160.00
These sessions involve two clients in a session with one coach. Dual sessions may be suitable for less developed players who share the same skill level. Another function of dual sessions may be to combine two players who perform opposite skills (e.g. one batsman and one bowler). While still beneficial, because the coach must divide time between the two players, dual sessions may not allow for as much attention to detail as an individual session.
4 sessions, $120.00 per session = $480.00
2 sessions, $120.00 per session = $240.00
These sessions involve 3+ clients in a session with one or more coaches. .
