Port Lincoln and Wangary to host Darren Lehmann Academy clinics

Darren Lehmann Academy on its way to Lower Eyre

Junior cricketers on Lower Eyre Peninsula are being encouraged to take advantage of specialised coaching as the Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy comes to the region on September 28 and 29.

For the first time the academy is coming to the Lower Eyre Peninsula to hold its School Holiday Country Clinics at Port Lincoln on September 28 and Wangary on September 29.

Academy senior coach Mick Harrity said circumstances has allowed for the academy to come to the region and engage with the young cricketers.

"Due to COVID and setbacks in dates with the cricket season, it's allowed us an opportunity this summer to go out to country areas and run some clinics," he said.

The clinics are open for up to 40 participants aged between 13 and 17-years-old who will get some coaching from the academy's high performance coaches, who are made up of former first class and current first class coaches.

Mr Harrity said the clinic would also involve video analysis.

"It's a good way of coaching, sometimes it's easier to understand what to try to fix or work on when you're seeing yourself doing it," he said.

"We're trying to bring this to kids, especially out to the country that don't get exposed to this (coaching) as much."

There are still a lot of openings for both sessions.

People are encouraged to contact Mr Harrity on mark@dlca.com.au to receive a registration form.
