Master Class

Open to ages from 10 through 18 years, CMICA’s Master Class Camps are mini-academies that give you a glimpse of what our academy programmes have to offer.

Consider it as the beginning of your formal training toward a professional career in cricket.

The Master Classes deliver brilliant instruction from experts in their discipline. You’ll be taught about batting, pace bowling, spinbowling, keeping, and fielding. And in time, you’ll also master these moves.

Much like any class, expect our Master Classes to be structured with sessions designed to maximise each minute of every hour. But unlike a traditional class, our Master Classes intend to engage your mental and physical capabilities.

Here’s how it works:

Morning Session:

Morning classes for our cricket clinics run for roughly an hour. They combine theoretical presentations with physical instruction and/or correction.

With each Master Class, you will have the opportunity to understand the fundamentals on batting, spinning or pacing, and wicket keeping or fielding, giving you sufficient foundation to play the game at your very best.

Afternoon Session:

As the day winds down, you get to practice the theories the morning session presented. Indeed, here is where net sessions and/or games take place.

You will also gather further instruction as you are put through the paces. Learn from our prominent guest coaches, the likes of John Davidson and Ian Healy. Of course, no Master Class is complete without the guidance of Craig McDermott, who will be in attendance for most of the classes. Note though that not all guest coaches may stay on for the afternoon session.

A typical cricket camp schedule may play out as below, with the following coaches:
