Matchfit Academy is a independent sports coaching business, established by brothers Danny and Ronny Harrison, which has just celebrated its third anniversary. The mission of Matchfit Academy is to provide top quality sports coaching through:
Introductory programs for children aged 3-6 to develop the basic hand-eye coordination and ball skills required for cricket, football and rugby in a fun and friendly environment (MATCHFIT MINIS). The program reflects the seasons: in the autumn and spring terms the focus is on football and rugby, while during the summer we concentrate on cricket.
Specialist individual and small group cricket coaching for boys and girls aged 6-15, including those involved in - or with aspirations to - Performance or County Age Group cricket, at highly competitive rates (MATCHFIT ONE-TO-ONE).
Holiday sports camps, usually in the spring and summer holidays and summer half term at Blackheath CC and themed around cricket (MATCHFIT CAMPS).
Great sports parties, themed on cricket, football or rugby, specially designed to suit your child (MATCHFIT PARTIES).
DUE TO CURRENT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, CURRENTLY ONLY INDIVIDUAL CRICKET COACHING IS AVAILABLE: FOR FURTHER DETAILS SEE MATCHFIT ONE-TO-ONE.
