Coinciding with the re-signing of Boof as our official Brand Ambassador, our sponsorship with the academy will assist in fostering the development of our young cricketers to provide them with all the tools they need to make the most of the sport.
Darren recently spoke of our partnership and how he’s proud to have us involved with this important initiative.
“As a Fielders Ambassador, over the years I have done television, radio and newspaper advertising with Fielders and I couldn’t be happier that they have invested themselves in helping us to help cricketers of any ability be the best they can be via our internationally recognised cricket programs,” said Boof.
Our support of the DLCA will assist in growing its operations and opening a Darren Lehmann Aboriginal Cricket Academy in 2016, while expanding its reach into India.
Since opening in 2005, the Adelaide-based DLCA has hosted players from all over the world, with 18 international, 14 international “A” players and almost 100 First Class players progressing through the system.
The academy ran a number of programs that are extension of the International High Performance Program, including tours for 16 to 18 year old cricketers from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore, who have toured Sri Lanka, India, and the UK to participate in the Gap Year and Winter programs plus Regional Camps.
Based on Australian Cricket Team Coach, Darren Lehmann’s approach to the game, the DLCA has proven to be very successful at developing cricketers of all ages and abilities – we couldn’t be prouder to be involved with such a worthwhile program.
