(UNDER 16s)

Saxon Sports Frankston established the Junior Cricket Academy Program in 2009 as an avenue to assist talented and enthusiastic young cricketers reach their cricketing ambitions.

We are very proud of the fact that our first Academy Group included Ben Ashkenazi who has since gone on to play for Australia Under 19's & a contracted Bushrangers cricketer

Whether the goal is to be ready to move up an age group within club cricket or to play for Victoria we feel this program will help every player to get closer to their goal.

We limit the Academy to just 12 places per program to ensure an excellent coach to player ratio, guaranteeing that every player gets the coaching and attention that they require.

So what do you need to take part in our Academy?
