A mentoring program
made for you
Technology has changed the modern world. It has allowed us to connect with anyone from anywhere at any time we want.
The digital world has opened up great opportunities to develop skills and learn from the best of the best no matter where they live on the globe.
Coaching — and cricket coaching in particular — has yet to take full advantage of the immense potential of technology.
That’s now changing, with the 1st Class Mentoring Program offering many of the benefits of in-person coaching, in a format which suits the lifestyle and location of cricketers across the globe!
How does the mentoring program work?
Face to face training with a professional mentor or sports coach, especially when it comes to a physical activity like cricket, will always be extremely beneficial for technical skills development, fitness training, and gameplay.
What separates the very top professional athletes from the rest though? It’s not just skill. It’s mental aptitude, and looking after yourself holistically.
The mental component to achieving greatness in cricket cannot be overestimated. Getting to the next level in your game is all about your mental resilience, composure, and strength.
That’s where the true sports stars shine.
Our mentoring program has been designed with this philosophy in mind, and is suitable for both amateur and professional cricket players.
At 1st Class Cricket Academy, we don’t neglect the importance of mental fitness in favour of technical skills. We believe both are necessary.
The mentoring program focuses on providing an all-round coaching experience, including content on physical fitness, nutrition, leadership skills, psychology, and a whole lot more.
With our easy-to-use online portal you’ll be able to access all the coaching content you want from the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you!
Monthly Q & A
In addition to the library of online tutorials, coaching lessons and content available through our online academy, we’ll be hosting a once a month chat with various current or ex-1st class cricketers, as well as sports nutritionists, fitness gurus, sports psychologists, and more.
These informative, insightful and inspirational chats will include a question and answer session run by Nathan Hauritz. The sessions offer aspiring cricketers knowledge and insights that cannot just be taught.
Our esteemed guests have included:
