Q: How do I get into Middlesex?
A: (UK only) For players aged between 9 and 14, Middlesex Cricket operates a highly successful pathway up to county cricket. Your club or school can nominate you into the borough programme which is the entry point of our player pathway. Contact your Club Colts manager to discuss the process.
Q: We have attended a camp before, but why should I come again?
A:Have another great experience with us at one of our TMGA camps!
You’ll work with new players, be challenged and have further opportunities to develop your skills to improve your game. If you work with the same coaches again, in the 4 days you worked with them on the previous camp, you will have only scratched the surface. These coaches are exceptionally high quality, with a huge amount of experience and knowledge to pass on. So you could spend all year with them and still have plenty to learn.
If you get the opportunity to work with new coaches, or different coaches, you’ll have the opportunity to build new relationships, learn from some of the best and improve your game drawing on their experiences.
Developing your skills and refreshing key learning by attending another camp is a great way of progressing your performance. We will work with you referring to your previous electronic camp diary too, to build on previous experience and support your progress appropriately. The environment we set at the camps is based about developing players, regardless of age or ability, with better cricket skills and better personal skills. The hard work, atmosphere and excitement we create is one that all players will enjoy and benefit from.
Q: What if I have exams and school work?
A: We have purposefully designed our camp days to be intense 3 and half hours and across 4 days. This will allow all players to get ample study time in before and after cricket training. Here at TMGA we highly value the importance of school and education. Having academic results helps with career progression outside of cricket which is important to all young people, even those that go on to play professional cricket. There is lots of research about the benefits of exercise, social interaction and physical activity on academic results, due to reduced stress levels, enhanced concentration and focus and by giving boost to self confidence/self belief. So by attending the camps, you’ll be healthier, improve your cricket and help improve academic scores too!
Q: I am going on holiday, I can't attend all or part of the camp?
A: That is a shame. Our camp days are set and we require players to sign up to all 4 days due to the nature of the programme. If you miss a day due to holiday, that may be your decision, however we do not offer a reduced attendance rate. We would love to see you at any future camps and academy activities, so please keep an eye out on our social media streams and our website for upcoming announcements and future events.
