CRICKET CAMP STRUCTURE
What’s the purpose of our cricket camps?
It is our intention to teach players of all abilities how to become the best possible batter, bowler and fielder. Therefore, we offer a serious training and learning environment for cricketers aged 6-13 years. Additionally, our coaching team are qualified and experienced players and cricket coaches which allows us to make use of effective drills, game scenarios and educational activities. This gives us the capacity to deliver cricket camps that focus on building, refining and improving techniques and skills of all junior cricketers. In turn, enabling junior cricketers to become very capable players.
What happens at cricket camp?
1. Players placed into teams
The cricket camps we offer are day camps with no overnight stay. In other words, think of cricket camp as a typical day at school. For example, the coaching team greets players and parents during the morning drop off. Once this happens, we place children into groups based on age and ability. This decision making is based on information provided by parents and our internal procedures. Where possible, children are grouped with friends and siblings.
2. Delivery of the coaching and learning program
Following this, the coaching program is implemented in a way where children rotate through specific skill stations. During the day, meal and drink breaks are afforded to all players like they would receive during a school day. For instance, players get a recess and lunch break at cricket camp.
3. Feedback and player recognition
At the end of each day of camp, players reflect on their learning. On the final day of camp, coaches issue awards to high performing players as well as a player report card which provides children and parents with feedback on player performance, skill development and attitude.
What do we provide?
- Professional, licensed, qualified and experienced coaches
- All professional coaching equipment
- An engaging coaching program that caters for all abilities
- Safe and inclusive learning environment
What should your children bring to cricket camp?
- Appropriate clothing: T-shirt, shorts/track pants, running shoes or cricket shoes, jumper in case of cold weather, a hat/cap, and change of dry clothing in case of wet weather.
- Cricket equipment: If players have their own kit bags with batting gloves, bats, helmets, pads and protectors, they are encouraged to bring this to cricket camp. We supply cricket equipment to players who don’t feel comfortable bringing their personal equipment to cricket camp.
- Sun Cream: All players should bring their own sun cream. We do supply sun cream at our cricket camps. Our staff will verify they children reapply sun cream during different stages at camp. For child protection reasons, we cannot assist children in applying sun cream.
- Food and Drinks for Recess and Lunch: Healthy balanced recess and lunch. We do not provide food for children.
- Refillable drink bottles: All children will be given opportunities to refill bottles with water during the day and will be given frequent opportunities to rehydrate with water.

Here is a guide as to what our cricket coaching curriculum looks like. However, please note that our coaching program is subject to change. For example, it constantly evolves and adapts to the learning needs of players at each camp.
PRAISE FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
Luke’s knowledge of the technical aspects of cricket, along with his awareness of how to make coaching sessions engaging and educational, allows him to create a fun and positive learning environment for children. I’ve seen Luke in action at his school holiday cricket camps with his team of coaches. The cricket coaching programs used by Team Super Sports Camps combines technique advice with skills activities and stimulating game scenario sessions to help every junior cricketer reach their goals.

James had a great time today at your Sutherland Shire Cricket Camp. He said all of the coaches were really nice and enjoyed hearing their tips and techniques. The communication has been excellent as was the organisation of the day. Great job. Thanks.
Corbin really enjoyed his time at the cricket camp. The staff were all friendly and approachable and it seemed like a really well run camp. We will definitely sign up for the next one.
My son always comes home after your Concord Cricket Camps exhausted but elated. Thank you once again for providing a fantastic experience, he always learns a lot and has a lot of fun. We will be back next holidays! Thanks.
Max (7 yo) thoroughly enjoyed his time at today’s cricket camp. He was excited to tell me about the games (drills) he participated in and is excited to go back tomorrow for day 2. As a parent, I was very impressed with the organisation and thorough briefing I received prior to the camp, including information about weather arrangements, agenda for the day and how the children’s needs would be met. Throughly professional!
Professional, excellent with the kids and a fun filled day keeping them occupied and challenged. we had our 2 boys aged 8 and 9 in the 2 day Newcastle Cricket camp and look forward to the next Super Sports Camp as they will definitely attend. Thank you again, Julia.

Hi Luke, both my Daughter and Son attended the Cricket Camp in the summer holidays. Since picking them up all they have done is talked about how good it was and wanting to go next school holidays. Thanks for providing such a great activity.
I just wanted to thank Team Super Sports Camps for your organisation, fantastic communication, and outstanding cricket camp. My son attended the Concord Cricket Camp. He was brimming with confidence and enjoyed it thoroughly. I was most impressed with the assessment of his skills report card. It’s given my husband and myself an idea of my son’s skills (weaknesses and strengths) and therefore an idea of how to help him. The coaches were professional and we look forward to coming back next summer.
Sensational cricket camp! My kids absolutely loved it! The coaches were brilliant and and taught my kids so much in 2 days. The coaches made the days so much fun and packed each day with plenty of drills and skill sessions. The camp exceeded all my expectations. Can’t wait for the next one. Thank you!
BENEFITS OF OUR CRICKET CAMPS
Technical Advice for Batters
Focusing on developing correct batting technique, our program ensures batters get to master key batting skills. For example, we implement bat swing, footwork, placement and power drills that support junior cricketers to strengthen their front foot and back foot shot making abilities.
Net Session Practice & Drills
A centerpiece of our cricket camp program is providing junior cricketers with access to game simulation training using quality cricket net facilities. During net sessions, batters and bowlers are given technical advice and participate in situations that force them to make correct decisions as batters and bowlers.
Fast and Spin Bowling Technique Sessions
With an emphasis on correct technique, we equip fast bowlers and spin bowlers with fundamental technique and skills. This is achieved through a combination of technical advice, accuracy drills and game scenarios to help players to become confident and competent bowlers.
Learning T20 Skills & Playing T20 Games
The T20 cricket skills segment of our camp is very popular. This is because we offer technical advice on how batters ought to execute lofted drives, tips on bowling slower balls and train fielders to be awarne and alert. Therefore, our program enables children to build a wide set of technical skills needed for short form cricket success.
Refining Fielding Skills
It’s vital that players perfect their ground fielding, throwing, and catching skills. That’s why our coaches implement fielding exercises, drills and match scenarios to enhance each player’s ability to field balls cleanly, throw correctly and catch balls close to the wicket and in the outfield.
Professional Cricket Coaches
Our coaches include NSW junior representatives, NSW Second XI representatives, NSW schoolboy representatives, and Sydney, Newcastle and Maitland first grade players. The licensed and qualified coaching team use their playing experience and coaching knowledge to create an engaging learning environment.
