The Official Kevin O'Brien Website - Academy
The Academy was established in 2011. In the first year, we had 15 participants, mostly children from the ages of 10-16. 8 of these went on to gain Interprovincial and/or International honours. Thats is just over 50% success rate of the participants improving their own personal games. All sessions take place in Kevin's home club Railway Union Cricket Club, Sandymount Dublin. Kevin has been lucky enough to have been coached by some of the best coaches around the world, and I have picked up all aspects of knowledge and skill needed to pass on my experience which I have gained.
We offer 3 different types of Mentoring/Coaching and they are as below :
Kevin O'Brien Cricket Academy offers personal one to one cricket coaching to suit your individual and personal needs for batting, bowling, fielding, and wicket-keeping. We use up to date drills, incorporating video analysis, bowling machine drills, drop feeds, tennis ball drills etc. to critically analysis each players individual technique. The benefit of the one on one coaching is that you are dealing with the one coach for a full 60 minutes and can get a lot more out of one session than you would in normal cricket training session.
We have expanded into club coaching this year, and it has been a huge success. We offer specific, top of the range cricket coaching for your clubs' individual needs from seniors men for all divisions to senior woman. Kevin O'Brien Cricket Academy will come to your club for these sessions.
We would run a 2 hour/3 hour session, incorporating a warm up, a fielding session, and then have a net session for the majority of the time. If time permitted we could even have a Q & A session about cricket and tactics/plans involved.
We would require between 15-20 players to participate and would charge 30 euro per person. We could do a session for the junior members of the club and would follow the same format but would be 20 euro per child.
We also offer coaching for all schools, colleges, and Universities. Please contact us via email to learn more about all training sessions.
