Cricket Derbyshire and Derby College are working in partnership to create the inaugural Cricket Derbyshire Sport Academy, launching in September 2015.

The BTEC Academy will offer a range of training and qualifications for young adults aged 16 to 19. 

It will offer young people in Derbyshire of all abilities - who are interested in sport, cricket events, competency and coaching - the opportunity to gain further education qualifications and to enhance further employment opportunities. 

Cricket Derbyshire Director of Partnerships, Ryan Duckett said: “The Cricket Derbyshire BTEC Sport Academy is an exciting new venture designed to develop cricket talent within Derbyshire, both as recreational players and coaches.

“Players, both male and female, will get the opportunity to sample the life of modern day professional cricketers by using the excellent facilities at The 3aaa County Ground and will receive a top quality education through Derby College.  

“Applicants will have the best of both worlds; training in Derby College’s state of the art facilities and taking practical lessons with professional, qualified ECB coaches as well as guest sessions from Derbyshire County Cricket Club’s Elite Performance Coaches and first team squad members.”
