16 October 2021 - 15 October 2022: Millfield - The Spin Academy

Starting October 2021, Millfield School in Street, Somerset is offering a unique opportunity for young cricketers to receive dedicated spin bowling coaching from former International Spinner Peter Such through Millfield – The Spin Academy.

The Spin Academy, which is open to children nationwide who are aged 11 to 19, seeks to discover, improve and support gifted spin bowlers through a blended approach based on Such’s extensive experience as both a top-level player and coach. This blended approach will develop technique and movement patterns that support spin and help to deliver it consistently, improve tactical and technical play, explore variations to help cricketers become more skillful as a bowler and look at the mental attributes needed to succeed.

The academy programme consists of ten five-hour coaching sessions where all academy members will come together for training at Millfield on set dates between October and March, plus continuous development throughout the year with remote support and analysis from Such including regular catch ups on a closed social media platform, a personalised development plan and opportunities to submit footage for feedback.
