About the Dragons Online Cricket Academy

On Sunday 22nd November 2020 Basel Dragons Junior Cricket Club launched of the Dragons Online Cricket Academy.

The academy is open to all the clubs in Switzerland with the intention of contributing to the upskilling of all our Swiss junior players .

The Online Cricket Academy will supplement on-the-ground coaching with various other aspects of cricket to help the comprehensive development of the players.

The idea is to provide the players with:
•    Motivation during these times of less matches and practices
•    Increased knowledge of cricket beyond the technical aspects of the game
•    Provide an additional cricketing touchpoint during the week

It is planned to run this as a regular, ongoing series. Watch out for session details!
