Coach - Jon TOOP
“When I was appointed as the Senior coach of the Templestowe Cricket Club, one of the first things that I wanted to put in place was to establish a Junior Cricket Academy to ensure that we are developing and teaching young cricketers in the right manner and to give them the best opportunity to reach their full potential”.
“We want to be seen as a really progressive club and the club of choice in Manningham and by establishing a Junior Cricket Academy (which we believe is the first of its kind in the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association) this will hopefully help us to attract new talent and players to Templestowe which has already taken place and this shows us that we’re on the right path”.
“The club has appointed Geoff Bowyer as the coach of our academy - Geoff has a wealth of experience and has coached at Victorian Premier Cricket level at Waverley, Hawthorn East Melbourne, Prahran, Dandenong, Camberwell Magpies and Fitzroy Doncaster”.
“We also want to be seen as a club that encourages and promotes girls to take up the game cricket and we would love to see more girls involved in our cricket program and Academy. The Templestowe Cricket Club is in arguably its most exciting phase in our 150 plus year history and we’re going from strength to strength off the field and we can’t wait for the season to start to hopefully continue the momentum on field”.
The Templestowe Junior Cricket Academy is available to boys & girls aged from 13 to 16 - numbers are capped to ensure specialist coaching.
To be part of the Academy it is by invitation – if your son or daughter is interested in joining the Academy, please email - firstname.lastname@example.org
