In partnership with Cranleigh Cricket Club

GoCricket Academy is led and managed by Paul Farris, Founder and MD of GoFest Active. Paul has a BSc in Sports Science and is an ECB Level 2 Coach. Currently Head Coach of Cranleigh Cricket Club Boys’ U12 to U15 squads, Paul also coaches for Surrey County Cricket Club and at Cranleigh School’s Cricket Academy run by Stuart Welch.

Also leading GoCricket Academy is Jack Scriven. Jack is Lead Coach of the Juniors’ Section at Cranleigh Cricket Club. A former Surrey Academy and First-Class player, Jack is also an ECB Level 2 Coach and a current CCC first team player.

Paul and Jack believe that a strong team spirit, together with excellent technical foundations, are essential in cricket and, if developed early enough, will help children fulfil their potential as they progress through the junior pathways to senior cricket. They strive to get the best out of each child and make this possible by ensuring sessions are fun, and by maintaining a small coach to cricketer ratio. This ratio is never more than 1:8 and is, often, less than this.

  • GoCricket Academy Aim: To provide regular, high-performance, small group, specialist coaching
  • When: Weekly: Usually Monday afternoons / evenings
  • Led By: GoFest MD & Level 2 Coach, Paul Farris, and Level 2 Coach, Jack Scriven

This is an additional, high-performance coaching opportunity aimed at those children with a strong ‘work ethic’ and who are aspiring towards a higher standard of cricket within their age group.

It will be available to all but must be pre-booked in advance. The emphasis is on small group, high-quality coaching with lots of 1:1 feedback and the opportunity to spend a longer period of time in a net or high intensity practice environment.

Group sizes: Maximum 8 players to each coach

Venue: Cranleigh Cricket Club or Glebelands School Indoor Sports Hall
