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.
