The one-month long camp organized from 1st Oct – 30th Oct is being conducted at the National Cricket Academy, BCCI, Bengaluru.  Some of the best coaches in the country are coaching the trainees under the supervision of Mr. Rahul Dravid, Head Cricket – NCA.  A customized training program has been made for each participant. The challenge has been to assess each of these Under 16 aged cricketers coming from varied backgrounds and countries, establishing their level of cricketing competence, designing appropriate programs and then delivering them. Language and cultural barriers have been overcome, with the passion for cricket which all of the trainees have in ample measure.

Participants have also been provided with excellent hotel accommodation, complete cricket kits, appropriate nutrition, strength and conditioning facilities and allowances to ensure their stay is comfortable and fruitful.
