THE R66T TO SUCCESS
“I spent 4 months at a high performance program run by Shaun Seigert in Australia back in 2010/2011.
“I can’t tell you how much it improved my game. I came home from the experience well-prepared for first-class cricket.
“That season I broke into the Yorkshire first team and the rest is history!
“Shaun is a great addition to the R66T Academy and will certainly not be afraid to really challenge players.”
Joe Root - England Cricketer
IMPROVE YOUR GAME
The High Performance Residential Program takes place in Adelaide, Australia between October and March each year.
The program is split into two 10-week seasons and is designed to first understand the player’s fundamentals and tactical skills.
Training will then focus on developing skills, physical, tactical and mental training to improve players all-round ability on the pitch.
DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER
At the R66T Academy, our focus is also on developing players characters.
The nature of the program will see players living independently in Adelaide which in turn, develops young players to become young adults who make good decisions both on and off the pitch.

HEAR FROM PLAYERS WHO HAVE ATTENDED THE RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM
“I’ve really enjoyed it, I’ve enjoyed the gym work quite a lot because it’s helped me build my fitness for cricket. I’m really enjoying having bowling sessions every day, it’s made my consistency much better and the group of people here are really nice and the coaches are really good and supportive. I’ve learnt quite a lot about my bowling action and how I should create more swing. Batting wise I’ve come on as well, back at my club in England, I was batting about 5, now I’m opening the batting and opening the bowling in the same match so I’m really enjoying it out here” 2022/2023 Residential Player
“Coming here, my expectations were quite high and the R66T Academy have lived up to that. I expected good net sessions, good indoor sessions and fitness sessions and I could improve myself so, the academy lived up to that. Before coming to the academy, my bowling stride was quite uneven, so I focused on that a lot with Aaron and my stride has improved a lot with the academy. On my batting my pull shots and playing the short balls has improved.” 2022/23 Residential Player
“As Toby will be heading back to the UK soon, I just wanted to send you guys a big “thank you” note from Rita (my better half) and I. Toby has enjoyed his stay at the Academy (and Grange Dolphins) immensely and it has been a great part of his development both as a cricketer and a young man making his way.
“It’s not easy to send your son off to the other side of the planet and just hope he is well received by good people. But you have delivered on that and more and made Toby feel very welcome and improved him as a cricket player and a person.
“For that you have our heartfelt thanks and no doubt Toby will be back over to Australia – I might even pop over myself next time, just wanted him to do this stint without “dad” if you know what I mean! Adelaide now has a special place in our hearts – thank you once again. Please make sure Toby gets you a beer or two” A Residential Player’s parent who attended the 2022/23 program
