The High Performance Program is the cornerstone of the DLCA. Over the summer of 2005/2006, the first group of players attended the program in Adelaide, South Australia, and it has been running ever since. It is a 24/7 cricket experience, where players follow a weekly program incorporating skills, batting, fielding, strength and conditioning, tactics and fitness testing.

The DLCA has a world class coaching panel including: Mark Harrity, Shaun Tait, Mark Cosgrove, Steve Stubbings, Brad Young, Peter Muggleton, Greg Quinn and more. The players also work through a full-time strength and conditioning program, whilst working with our sports psychologist.

At the same time, players are assigned a local club to play at, where they train twice a week and play on weekends. The Program is aimed at cricketers with an intermediate and above level of ability and cricket smarts, a high level of commitment, and are in their late teens to early 20s.

Players share accommodation in the city with other attendees of the DLCA, where they are provided all meals throughout the duration of the academy.

Focus of Training:
• General Skills
• Fielding
• Recovery
• Strength

• Conditioning
• Net sessions
• Batting
• Bowling

The full program runs for 20 weeks with a two week break over Christmas. Players that attend the complete program are exposed to high intensity training with elite coaches, helping develop their game further and reach multiple milestones.

Alongside full-time training with the academy, players are allocated to a local Australian club, where they will also train and play matches.

This is a high intensity program and is aimed at developing players to reach their full potential, either at a club or professional level. It is suited for people that are willing to leave their comfort zone and commit to six months of hard work.

Included in the academy package is high-quality accomodation, all meals, local transport, world-class coaching, uniform, club placement and once in a lifetime experiences.
