Our Academy Programs:

Weekday and Weekend Programs:  DreamCricket Academy conducts weekday and weekend cricket programs, camps and clinics at our indoor faciity as well as grounds across New Jersey.  

Ages: We start with boys and girls who are 7 years to 13 years (beginners).  We also train cricketers below 16 years of age if they have played some cricket previously. 

Girls Play FREE Program:  Girls play free during their first season at DreamCricket.   And we are the only facility with a woman coach.

Sibling Discount Offer:  We offer 10% off for a second child.

Venues: The program is primarily based at the indoor facility.  However, we believe strongly that boys and girls should play outdoors whenever possible.  So we spend a majority of the Spring, Summer and Fall months at our grounds which are mostly located in Somerset, NJ.  Our home ground is the Pine Grove Manor Elementary School Cricket Ground at 130 Highland Ave, Somerset, NJ.  We also conduct clinics and programs at Johnson Park, Piscataway; Weston Road Cricket Pitch, Somerset; and Lindeneau Elementary School Ground in Edison, NJ.
