Teaching life skills through cricket since 2010. 

The Cricket Academy is an education program that uses cricket as the means. We don't just teach the sport we love: cricket. We teach life, people and leadership skills. We teach teamwork, responsibility and discipline. We teach skills that our players and students require to be successful in today's fast moving world.

 
 

Mission

We want our sport to grow in participation. We want to succeed on the global stage. We want to deliver economic impact. We want to be recognised for our outstanding governance practice. We want every Malawian to be able to play cricket.

In order to compete against the top teams in Africa and the world, play in World Cup Qualifiers and possibly, one day, the World Cup itself. To give us the best chance of achieving this, our foundations have to be strong. Education is the key to building a sustainable future for cricket in Malawi.

Goals

Cricket in Malawi has come enormously far in a short space of time. Our goals are ambitious, but the passion, dedication, skill and experience of all those associated with The Cricket Academy and the Malawi Cricket Union; players, coaches, volunteers, staff, commercial partners, funding partners and committees, give us the confidence to reach high.

1. Grow the game

Significantly increase the popularity of cricket in Malawi, and the number of people playing it, with an emphasis on attracting youngsters. Targeting new areas for expansion through a coordinated coaching and development infrastructure. 

2. Bolster the game

Strengthen the standard of the game in Malawi and reduce the gap between international teams and domestic cricket by introducing a first class equivalent structure.

3. Support the game

Give our international teams the best chance of winning by providing the best possible support structure to our teams.

4. Lead the game

Provide strong leadership for the game in Malawi, continue to uphold the highest standards of governance and groom our players to ensure we sustain the strength of our sport.

 
 
 

In 2010, we started off with one team of 11 players and one cricket kit. Today we have over 100 schools in our development programs with more than 2,500 boys, girls, men & women participating.
