KINGSTON, Jamaica – Former Jamaica and West Indies spinner, Nikita Miller is all set and ready to open an Academy later this month.
In a move to grow and develop the next set of young cricketers, Miller is using 4Milla Academy to pass on skills and knowledge to the “next generation.”
The Academy is due to start Saturday, November 13 and will be conducted in a fun and safe environment for participants ages 5-18 boys and girls.
The Academy will be based at the Melbourne Cricket Club in Kingston.
The sessions, ranging from 60 – 90 minutes will focus on three main groups of girls and boys. The beginners, five to ten years old, will have one session starting at 9:30 am; while the intermediates and juniors, will have 90 minutes sessions. Those sessions start at 11:00 am.
Miller is excited about the progress of the Academy as “this is something I have been thinking about prior to my retirement. I want to give back and this is a progressive environment for the youngsters.”
Miller is currently pursuing his Level III Coaches course, coordinated by Cricket West Indies.
He is currently a part of the coaching staff of the Trinbago Knight Riders and works occasionally with the Jamaican team.
His professional career started in 2004 when he first played for Jamaica and ended in 2018 when he played the last ODI for West Indies against Zimbabwe.
