REGISTRATIONS OPEN FOR 2022-23 ZAYED CRICKET ACADEMY SEASON

Zayed Cricket Academy (ZCA) gets back underway with another fun and action-packed Term 1 programme, starting 29 August, as it builds on a productive year for the prestigious academy.

“Our dual target is to promote participation and fun at junior levels, while providing the best-in-class facilities for our elite players to harness their ambitions and, ultimately, represent both Team Abu Dhabi and the UAE men’s and women’s national teams,” said Abu Dhabi Cricket CEO, Matt Boucher.

“This is the best Academy in the country for cricketers to develop thanks to our world-class coaching and unrivalled playing opportunities. We also provide an environment that is inclusive, welcoming, fun and completely transparent, which is why hundreds of parents trust us with their children every day.”

Earlier in 2022, nine Zayed Cricket Academy players were called up to UAE youth national team camps, while the inaugural ZCA Premier League gave players a taste of international professional franchise cricket.

The weekly Girls Power session continues for girls aged 19 and under this season, while mixed sessions are run at all age groups from U6 to U19 to provide equal opportunities for everyone at the academy which is open 6 days a week.

Since the start of 2022, Zayed Cricket Academy has held a spring camp with Eoin Morgan and Paul Stirling, and player masterclasses from Sir Alastair Cook and Tom Banton. Some of Zayed Cricket Academy’s U13, U16 and U19 players are currently touring the UK and India in the lead-up to the new terms, while there are summer camps being run for U16 and U19 players.

Start with finding your child the most suitable cricket program by reaching out to the team on zcainfo@abudhabicricket.ae or 056 777 9964. Anyone interested in signing up for the academy can do so via https://booking.abudhabicricket.ae. There are a variety of discounts available for new members, with full term prices starting at AED 600.
