We deliver 1-2-1 , 122 coaching 12 months of the year on day times, evenings, and weekends.

We use the latest skills, drills and equipment incorporating the bowling machine and the Apple iPad Technology, Cricket Coach HD, which gives instant feed back on screen for players to analyse and discuss with the coach.

Lessons can be a 1 hour one-off or, multiple hours and even a block of lessons can be booked in advance.


Bookings must be made with George and Damian direct through email, DFCA will require you as an adult player or parent/carer of a person under the age of 18 to complete our Covid health and saftey form/ terms and condtions and return it with the full payment which must be made 24 hours before the session starts, you will be given a reference and payment link to make the payment through our website.

Failure to make the payment and return the form completed will result in a void booking.


If for any reason you are required to cancel a confirmed booking, you will need to provide 24 hours notice prior to the session to be eligible for a full refund or alternatively transfer the funds to a future 121/122 booking.

If this notice is not given, full payment will be required.

If for any reason your DFCA coach is unwell then we will look to re arrange the session/s or a full refund will be given.


Due to safeguarding children DFCA would prefer you to stay with your son/daughters if covid 19 guidlines are adhered to for  under 18 during sessions and you will be advised on a safe place to watch from and a mask must worn at all times.

We also understand that, this is not always possible due to logistics, DFCA would like you to factor this into your thought process whilst booking the session(s)

Saftey/House Keeping

Net Safety and house keeping will also be explained to you at the start of your first session by your DFCA Coach.

Ensuring a player is well enough to attend a 121 session – your responsibilities during Coronavirus.

DFCA are sure that by now you are familiar with the main symptoms of Coronavirus 

  • Use the 111 online coronavirus service if you have any of the following
  • High Temperature 38 degrees and above
  • New, continuous cough
  • Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste


If the player develops these symptoms, whilst away from the 121 sessions it is essential that you inform DFCA this can be done by email to damian@dfca.co.uk or George@dfca.co.uk or phone 07766801340 0r 07803098802 if our answer phone is on please state that this is a possible Coronavirus infection and you require an urgent call back.

If any member of your house hold displays these symptoms then the player should not attend the 121 session/s until that person has been tested (and the test result is confirmed as negative)

If in doubt follow this guidance. Please do not attempt to self- diagnose. Whilst we know that temperatures are common in players, during this period you cannot afford to take any risks. This is for everyone’s safety

If the player develops these symptoms whilst on a DFCA 121, DFCA will isolate the player and call you – you will need to collect the player as quickly as possible, arrange a test and self- isolate the player and the family until the test result is received. You will then need to inform DFCA of the test result.

If the player is clinically vulnerable or extremely clinically vulnerable then we highly advise you seek medical advice first and then speak to DFCA before booking.

Whilst we do our very best to minimise risk please be aware as with any sport there be a risk of injury weather using a soft ball or a hard cricket ball.

  • 122 - £58 Per Hour
  • Please note that with in the hour this may include a 5 minute debrief and will include 10 minutes for cleaning of equipment and departure from the nets safely maintaining 2 meters social distancing from other users.
