We are delighted to announce that 2021 will mark the launch of the new Roffey Cricket Academy. The academy will be run by our new Director of Youth Cricket, Rohit Jagota.
Many of you will know Rohit, for his exploits with the 1st XI team and through the coaching programme in recent seasons. Rohit, who is a Level 3 qualified coach, will bring a wealth of cricketing knowledge to the academy, having played cricket across the world.
The aim of the academy will be to ensure a safe and friendly environment for all colts, with targeted training plans to maximise their development. We see this as a real opportunity for Roffey Cricket Club to offer an elite cricketing experience for boys and girls in the local community.
Rohit will oversee the coaching and management of the teams at every age group, in order to encourage participation and enjoyment for all of our colts.
The academy will also establish strong links between the junior and senior teams at the club, to continue producing ‘home grown’ players for the 1st XI. This is something that has always been at the forefront of the club’s successes. Additionally, Rohit will be able to form a good relationship with Sussex CCC to enable suitable Roffey players to have access to the county’s junior pathway system. We will also be looking to further the participation of girls’ cricket at Roffey, with a view to fielding a girls’ team in the coming years.
As a club, we are extremely excited about this new venture and look forward to providing our junior members with high quality coaching.
