We are proud to run to sports centres of excellence. Set up to provide young players with the opportunity to combine academic and sporting excellence; Scarborough College partners The R66t Academy, The Pro Coach Yorkshire Cricket Academy and South Cliff Golf Club.
The Cricket Centre of Excellence is a partnership between Scarborough College and Pro Coach Yorkshire Cricket Academy. Pupils will benefit from first-class facilities, such as training at Headingley, as well as first class coaching.
A tailor-made programme ensures that the needs of the players are met and addresses all aspects of what makes a successful cricketer. As well as aiming to get players to get involved in matches of a suitably high calibre, the programme also focuses on facets such as strength and conditioning and nutritional advice.
The school coaches, Mr Pat Roberts and Mr Joe Davies, are both extremely experienced cricket players. Mr Roberts, the head coach, is current Scarborough Cricket Club captain. Mr Davies represented England U15s and U16s as well as Oxford University.
If you wish to find out more about the centre of excellence, please download the brochure or contact us. We will be happy to put you in touch with Mr Roberts and answer any questions of either a cricketing or academic nature.
With the College grounds adjacent to the grounds of South Cliff Golf Club, the partnership has actually existed for many years already. Mr Ivan Oliver, the Head Pro, has been working with Scarborough College as part of our Yorkshire Grit programme as well as school fixtures.
South Cliff Golf Club is known as one of the finest in the North of England and hosts a number of county and national events and the English Amateur Championships. Head Pro Ivan Oliver was the proud recipient of the Sir Henry Cotton Award in 2020, recognising his outstanding work in the field of youth golf development.
The Golf Centre of Excellence provides athlete specific and individual development in small groups and one-to-one sessions. The training regime takes into account fitness, strength and conditioning, nutrition and playing ability and progress. Players have an opportunity to play in club-based competitions as well as the opportunity to represent Scarborough College against other schools.
