Sevenoaks Vine Cricket Club is committed to developing our youngsters.  We have the support of the Kent Cricket Board being a Focus Club and we have an excellent tradition of juniors progressing to our 1st XI, then to First Class and even international cricket.

Our children are our future so the goal is clear – to help nurture the stars of the future and maximise their cricketing potential.

The purpose of the Academy is to transition children from the Junior teams to the Senior League Teams, which is why this page appears in two places on our web site.  Age is not a limiting factor here, if you are good enough you are old enough but children need to be safe against the speed of a hard ball in the adult game.  This playing environment gives young men and women visibility on the county and national circuit to follow in the footsteps of our previous first class cricketers.

The Academy focuses on developing players from U15 to U21 into senior club cricketers.  In 2013, 23 players (selected by the Senior and Junior club) will be challenged to play more competitive cricket, they will be provided with extra coaching and mentoring, and encouraged to think deeper about their game.  In 2012 Academy members played 154 senior games of Cricket, next year we are aiming to raise that figure to 200.  If you fit the age range with ambitions of maximising your potential and you are either interested in joining our academy now or playing in our Junior ranks first, please contact us.

The Academy is run by Shami Iqbal who is a Premier League winning captain in 1997, Mike Thompson the 2nd XI Captain, Rick Parsons the Club Coach and Miles Richardson the Junior Coaching Co-ordinator.

Between them they will assess which youngsters should be playing adult cricket and we hope that these youngsters will make themselves available for selection on a Saturday afternoon for a league side, assuming there is no clash with any schools cricket, or a Sunday afternoon in the Jazzers development side.
