Calderdale College Cricket Centre of Excellence
The initiative has been set up with Pro Coach Yorkshire, the official coaching provider for Yorkshire County Cricket Club, and will allow students at Calderdale College to receive professional coaching based at the new state-of-the-art sports facility at the College and Copley Cricket Club.
Pro Coach Yorkshire will offer support to deliver and drive the Cricket initiative at the College. Students at the College will be able to utilise the extensive network and links in the community to help them progress professionally. Andrew Gale said: "It's fantastic to see Pro Coach Yorkshire Cricket partnering alongside Calderdale College to provide their students with high quality cricket coaching. Having lived very close to the Calderdale area I know there is a real passion for cricket, coupled with the excellent facilities at the College I'm sure that this project will be a huge success."
