Winter Accelerator Programme - Dunedin

Otago Cricket are excited to again be offering the popular Accelerator Coaching Programme in Dunedin this winter!

Accelerator has been designed to offer school children years 3 - 13 the opportunity to grow their skills in the Edgar Centre HPC alongside our qualified coaches! Accelerator is an 8-week programme (beginning Monday 13 June), which runs for 4 weeks either side of the Term 2 School Holidays.

The programme is designed to challenge athletes both technically & tactically through skill games, drills & challenges. We pride ourselves on being forward-thinking in our training methods, and keeping the emphasis on FUN. This winter we have been lucky to recruit some awesome "lead coaches" to our ranks, who will also work with children to set & achieve short & long-term goals! Check out our coaching team below:

  • Travis Muller (Level 2 Coach & current Otago Volt)
  • Shawn Hicks (Development Coach & former Otago Volt)
  • Emma Black (SBS Bank Otago Spark)
  • Sophie Gray (Dunedin CDO, former Otago Spark)
  • Nic Brosnahan (Development & Dunedin District Coach)
  • Tim Horton (Development Coach)
