The High Performance Program is the cornerstone of the DLCA. Over the summer of 2005/2006, the first group of scholars 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.
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.
Open to both men and women, players can attend the Program for either 20 weeks over the Australian summer (October to March), or a 10 week block before or after Christmas.
The Program continues to run out of Adelaide, South Australia, and players share accommodation in the city CBD with other scholars of the DLCA.
