Philosophy at GEMS Heritage Cricket Academy

We want to help your child maximize his or her ability by creating an environment and culture for long-term player development.

Long- term player development means prioritizing a player’s lifetime cricket experience over short-term accomplishments or challenges. While most clubs take a team-centered approached to development where in the success of the team supplants the needs of the individual, our player centered approach allows for the academy to cater to the needs of each individual player as he or she grows in the game.

A critical component of the player development process is feedback. Each player will have the opportunity to meet with their coach twice per year to review a personal evaluation of their growth and development. This helps the player to understand how to best proceed along their development pathway.

Development does not happen in a straight line; it is a cyclical process of education, application, and evaluation.
