Today, there are so many sports that are being recognized, not only in India but also in the world. From kabaddi and volleyball to squash and races, the arena of sports is back onto the screen. However, the sport that has really grabbed the spectator’s attention in recent days is women’s cricket. It’s come alive once again. Not only the sport but also the interest of people in the sport has been growing. The youth have been chasing their dreams. The young girls today, see themselves as someone who would one day be a part of the 11 on the field. The women in blue, their achievements, their game, have been inspiring many to a great extent.
Seeking inspiration from these superwomen is what led to the establishment of Female Cricket Academy. In India, there are cricket academies in so many parts of the country. Female cricket not being so popular until recent times, most of these academies specialize in men and boys coaching. Female Cricket Academy, however, focuses on the young girls who dream of being a part of the 22-yard circle wearing the blue jersey. The aim of the academy is to provide the best possible training to the aspiring cricketers and nurture their cricketing journey. Founder & CEO Mr. Vishal Yadav opened the academy with the objective of helping the girls to chase their dreams in the arena of cricket.
Female Cricket Academy was established in Mumbai in November 2017. An amazing response is what led Vishal and the team to open academies in places like Kolkata as well. A journey that started with only 10 young girls, today, is 40+ strong! The academy aims to make female cricket more popular in India. It also aims to make parents more aware of the same so that their children can take a step further to achieve their goals. The academy along with highlighting the talent of women also appreciates the difference that they make in society.
The girls not only get the opportunity to interact with some of the star players but also get insights from them. Coached by some of the best players, could these young dreamers ask for better?
The tournaments and events organized by the academy aim to create awareness about women’s social and practical issues, such as domestic violence, lack of education and health practices.
The Female Cricket Academy holds summer and monsoon camps. The former is held from March to May and the latter from June to October. The regular camps are held from November to March. The Female Cricket Academy is the only one that conducts camps during the monsoons in Mumbai! Along with enjoying the rain, they make sure that the team enjoys the essence of the sport during the season as well!
To Female Cricket Academy and its girls, fitness is considered to be very important. To ensure the same, they also organize regular health camps and nutrition camps for the girls on a monthly basis.
The Female Cricket Academy only looks to make sure that all the superwomen of our country get an opportunity to live her dream. To give them opportunities and to train them well not only as a player but also as a person!
