Top Talent Cricket Academy (TTCA)

“Late Capt.B.B. Nimbalkar Integrated Cricket Development Center”.

Kolhapur District Cricket Association under the name and in memory of Late Capt. Bhausaheb Nimbalkar has decided to float “Late Capt.B.B.Nimbalkar Integrated Cricket Development Center”.

The objective of this project is to develop an integrated Cricket Centre which becomes a living monument for the late Shri Bhausaheb Babasaheb Nimbalkar. This centre would provide all facilities for promising & budding cricketers not only of Kolhapur but for Districts around Kolhapur viz. Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Satara, Sangli, & Solapur. The center will be operated and administered by Kolhapur District Cricket Association through its Cricket Development Committee a sub-committee of KDCA. This sub-committee comprises experienced and seasoned senior players from the District and will also source information from other national level players, coaches, trainers etc. This center will bring together and integrate all Cricket development activity in the District under one roof.

Phase – I “Top Talent Cricket Academy”

As the first step towards this vision KDCA decided to float a Top Talent Cricket Academy for registered cricket players from Kolhapur city & district. The idea behind starting this academy is to spot, short list potential talented players from the age bracket of U 14, U 16 & U19. Such players after being identified and a serious commitment from them as well from their parents, subject to final selection with the help of Principal/Head Coach (Visiting Coach) are taken under the wings of KDCA’s Top Talent Cricket Academy. As the main aim of the academy, selected players are being coached successfully to a specific requirement to prepare them in all areas connected to play cricket at the highest or best possible level.

To successfully conduct the Top Talent Cricket Academy and to make it result oriented, we have formulated a well structured and a time framed program. KDCA has appointed a qualified/experienced Head/Principal coach on visiting basis. Two local coaches have been appointed in consultation with the Head/Principal coach to assist him and carry out the structured program along with him.

KDCA is happy and proud to mention that the Top Talent Cricket Academy has achieved it's objective and sees a good overall development in its players at the competitive level in each category they participate.
