Producing World Class Cricketers
Team building is a much more thorough and painstaking process than it seems. Some of the prerequisites in this post modern era are back-ups and systems through which the young talent is groomed and equipped for international challenges over the years.
In the last three years PCB geared up towards enhancing the levels of excellence – in all spheres especially towards the development of infrastructure and establishment of NHPC. The New Domestic Structure too is another step in that direction. We are quite optimistic that these steps would famously serve Pakistan Cricket in years to come.
Under the auspices of the Pakistan Cricket Board, PCB Cricket Coaching Academies are premiere facilities, which welcome gifted player from the regional, national as well as international cricket arenas, aimed directly at cricketers interested in furthering their professional acumen and learning from the best in the world (Pakistan’s own Ex-National Team Stars).
The new complex of National High Performance Centre contains all the modern facilities and reflects the Pakistani Architecture. National High Performance Centre (NHPC) offers its entrants a unique combination of the most refined and effective coaching skill development programs found anywhere in the world today.
National High Performance Centre will also act as a finishing school for Pakistan “A” and various segments like U-15, U-17, U-19 that form part of this academy.
