THE KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union has launched its ground-breaking Dolphins School of Excellence (DSE) programme, designed to enhance collaboration between all youth cricket stakeholders as a crucial step in creating a sustainable pipeline to the Hollywoodbets Dolphins Men’s and Women’s teams for the future.
“The formal KZNCU structures continues to operate well under the guidance of Cricket South Africa. The DSE will be an additional platform that will add value to the formal pipeline through the support of our incredible KZN community and partners.” CEO of KZN Cricket Heinrich Strydom said.
The DSE will aim to provide additional opportunities to ensure that the culture of excellence known as the Dolphins Way is embedded throughout the pipeline. It will cater for all players under the age of 18 who want to take their game to the next level. The DSE aims to link the KZN cricket ecosystem and therefore various opportunities will also be extended to up-and-coming coaches, umpires, scorers, ground staff, cricket administrators and private academies.
Players and officials will get the opportunity to be part of the Dolphins brand, experience what is to play and train at the iconic Hollywoodbets Kingsmead and get the opportunity to interact with the current men and women representing KZN at the highest level.
Registration is free of charge and will include some basic opportunities without any costs involved. There are also various packages for players to choose from as well as different ways for partners to get involved. Strydom is particularly excited about the enhancement of the pipeline, whilst levelling the playing fields for all that want to be part of the beautiful game.
