Would you like a free membership to the world's most comprehensive online cricket coaching resource: PitchVision Academy?
Are you interested in having a free complete course from a growing list of online cricket coaching courses?
Now you can have both in our latest competition.
What's on offer?
The prize is pretty straightforward: One free membership to PitchVision Academy and one free online coaching course from PitchVision Academy's online courses.
All the courses are complete guides from experts in the field on their topic: mental training with David Hinchliffe, batting technique with Gary Palmer, bowling speed with Ian Pont, fielding skills with Derek Randall, captaincy with Mike Brearley and cricket fitness with Glamorgan CCC strength coach Rob Ahmun.
The membership also entitles you to a host of other benefits including:
- A substantial discount on any future courses bought.
- The ability to track your performance in bowling speed, accuracy, batting footwork, scoring areas, scoring rate and many other areas using the revolutionary PitchVision system.
- Discounts with our partners including SPIN magazine and cricket equipment suppliers.
- Access to the 'members only' forums and newsletter
Even if you never use these extra benefits, the course alone should be enough to substantially improve your game. If you are serious about becoming a better cricketer, how can you afford not to enter?

Send in your school, college or university assignment on any aspect of cricket

It can be on any cricket related subject including (but not exclusively): equipment, coaching techniques, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, sport psychology or tactics.
Simply: anything goes.
