Chile

Winter academy for Chile

ESPNcricinfo staff

Chilean National Development Officer, Patricio Caamano, is currently finalising plans to run a high performance program throughout the winter months for the Under-13, Under-15 and Under-19 national team squads. It will be the first time that Chile has run such a program and is expected to see a vast improvement by the Chilean junior squads in international competition for the 2008-09 season.

The academy will be based at Chile’s principal training facility, Las Casa Roja, and will see the three squads working on batting, bowling, fielding, fitness and tactics. The academy will run from June to September.

This is a great idea, and it will do wonders for the quality of cricket in Chile over the next 20 years.
