RUDOLPH BUYS (photograph)
I am a dedicated cricket coach who has experience at Primary School, High School and Club level. I am adept at counselling younger players on sportsmanship, developing a winning attitude and developing players to get in shape before a season. I specialise in one-on-one and group training sessions. For the past two years I was the Head Coach at Paul Roos Gymnasium. I have been involved in Boland Provincial coaching since 2010 and have been the Boland U18 Coke Coach during 2014 and 2015. In 2015 and 2016 I was the assistant coach at the U19 Cubs Week for the Cobra U19 Cubs side.
VISION
The Somerset College Cricket Academy will provide private coaching for individual cricketers, teams and coaches of various ages and experience levels. Rudolph Buys’ vision is to develop a high performance cricket academy situated at a state-of-the-art facility on the sports grounds of Somerset College. The academy aims to improve cricket at Somerset College and in the Helderberg region. The main focus will be to develop cricket and give players intense and focused coaching in one-on-one, as well as group sessions, and to provide young aspiring cricketers with the necessary skills to constantly improve their game and be more confident in their own ability.

The Academy will offer:

  •  Private coaching
  •  One-on-one coaching sessions
  •  Group sessions
  •  Clinics for players and holiday programmes
  •  Hiring of facility to cricket clubs / touring sides.

The official opening will take place on Monday 18 July 2016.
