Queens United Cricket Academy is New York's premier cricket training academy, established to teach youngsters the skills of the game and to inspire them with its foundations - team work, honesty, integrity and fair play.
Our vision is to create a center of excellence for young talented cricketers who want to take their game to the highest level. We believe the best way to achieve that is to show the young players how we prepare for games, both on and off the field. With our great coaching team to deliver specially designed programs, we aim to mold tomorrow’s cricketers today.
All our programs are run by coaches certified from one of the ICC accredited training programs like the ones from Cricket Australia or CoachED Cricket. Each program is customized based on location (indoor vs outdoor), ability and age group. Our philosophy is to work on skills in a progression while maintaining a fun environment. We are committed to building well rounded cricketers by touching all aspects of the game - be it pure cricket skills, strategy, game sense, fitness, discipline or dealing with match situations. We welcome boys and girls of all ages and ability
