Welcome to the Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy

“It’s all about improving cricketers, identifying what each player needs to improve and
placing that player with the appropriate coach and program to make it happen.”

-Darren Lehmann

The Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy (DLCA) provides a Centre of Excellence for participants attending from all over the world. Our program provides a total life experience, not just a cricket one. The DLCA looks at your future within the game and provides guidance to improve and strive to achieve at your particular level. Players gain the benefit of utilising the South Australian Cricket Association's High Performance program

Since opening in 2005, the DLCA has hosted players from all over the world. Players such as Monty Panesar, Phil Mustard, Ajmal Shahzad, Samit Patel, Scott Borthwick, Joe Root, Alex Hales & James Hildreth are just some of the individuals who have benefitted from their time at the DLCA.

“Much of Panesar’s recent improvement is down to a visit to Darren Lehmann’s Academy in Australia specifically to work on his batting and fielding”.
-Simon Wilde, Sunday times

I think the DLCA has worked pretty well for us over the last few years. We sent Ajmal Shahzad there a few years back and he came back in tremendous shape. It has been a similar story with the likes of Oliver Hannon-Dalby, David Wainwright, Adam Lyth and now Joe Root.”
Andrew Gale, Yorkshire County Cricket Club Captain.

Players from the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, Zimbabwe, India, the West Indies and Australia as well as ECB County players are regular DLCA students.
