HENSCHELL CRICKET ACADEMY PTY LTD was established in 2008 by former Queensland First Class cricketer, Brett Henschell, to provide a locally based coaching service dedicated to improving the skills of cricketers in Brisbane’s western and south-western suburbs.
Research had shown that some players were travelling across Brisbane to access coaches and were desperate for a service closer to home.  A Holiday Clinic was advertised and conducted in the Winter of 2008, with some 58 boys and girls in attendance confirming the demand.  Since that first step, Henschell Cricket has progressed to conducting Holiday Clinics, Personal Coaching Sessions and Coaching Events, plus being contracted to a number of private schools to provide Clinics and team coaches.
Nine Holiday Clinics are conducted each year from June to January.  Four are open to the general public and conducted at Fig Tree Pocket State School, a central point for many players in the area.  The Clinic program varies in content depending on the time of year.  Five are held for Private Schools and incorporates the needs and requirements of the individual school.  
Personal Coaching is conducted all year round at Fig Tree Pocket State School.  This small group coaching, with a maximum of four students of similar age and ability each Session, is conducted for one hour after school over a full Term.  The emphasis of the program varies depending on the time of year and the playing commitments of individuals.  Regular written reports are provided to players and parents, whilst footage of individuals batting and bowling/keeping is taken for analysis and discussion during the Term.
All coaches representing Henschell Cricket are Cricket Australia accredited and have undertaken further training via an internal coach mentoring program recognized by the Australian Cricketers Association.  Many current coaches attended Holiday Clinics and Personal Coaching Sessions as students and there is no greater accolade than a student wanting to become a coach where they learnt their cricket.  
Henschell Cricket can also assist with queries on personal gear, training equipment, wicket repairs and net complexes.
