Coaching

Topline Cricket’s team of coaches offers personal, effective teaching relationships.

We cover every discipline in cricket. We teach the fundamentals of Batting, Fast Bowling, Spin Bowling and Wicket-Keeping, excel in correcting deficiencies, and also pride ourselves on mentoring players through their development and advancement. Our one-on-one coaching is suitable for both junior and senior cricketers.

A 30-minute, one-on-one coaching lesson costs between $40 and $45, depending on the coach. Hour-long lessons may also be available.

We also offer squad training and development sessions at our premier facility here at Topline, or, alternatively, at your cricket club. Please Contact Us to find out more!
