The Bradman Foundation has announced an on-going partnership with Steve Waugh Cricket to provide cricket coaching clinics for young Australian cricketers at the historic Bradman Oval in Bowral, in NSW’s Southern Highlands.
Aimed at young players – girls and boys – between 6 and 17, the cricket clinic partnership between the Bradman Foundation and Steve Waugh Cricket continues the tradition of providing a unique opportunity for young cricketers to develop their skills during the summer break, said Rina Hore, Executive Director of the Bradman Foundation.
“There are fantastic benefits in attending a Steve Waugh Cricket clinic at Bradman Oval, the ground where Sir Donald first honed his skills,” said Rina. “These clinics include admission to the Bradman Museum, an inspiring opportunity to learn about the world’s greatest batsman and the game’s heritage delivered by the Bradman team.”
“In addition, participants will have the chance to hold a significant item from the museum vault, and take part in the many discovery trails that engage children and cricket enthusiasts of all ages.”
Ms Hore said that due to circumstances beyond the Bradman Foundation’s control, for the first season in 26 years, it was not able to incorporate residential cricket coaching camps during the forthcoming school holidays. “Chevalier College, the traditional accommodation provider for all our past years is being refurbished over the summer break, and we have been unable to find suitable alternative accommodation for the children in the Highlands for 2016-17. But young cricketers need not be disappointed, due to our partnership with Steve Waugh Cricket,” she said.
“The number of Steve Waugh Cricket clinics held across NSW has been increasing – largely due to Steve’s philosophy on coaching. His values are very much aligned with the Foundation’s proven mix of fun, sportsmanship and inclusiveness, regardless of experience or ability,” said Rina.
“On behalf of the Foundation, I would also like to acknowledge the long and loyal service of our many residential coaches over the past 26 years. Men and women from all over Australia who have given their time to assist young cricketers build their skills during the summer break. These residential coaches have been an integral part of the Foundation’s work and we thank them for their service. A number of these coaches will continue to assist with the Steve Waugh Cricket clinics,” she said.
