The CAP curriculum consists of two modules -- training the coaches and training the kids. CAP will train aspiring coaches to ensure efficient coaches are produced who in turn will be coaching the kids.

CAP director Irfan pathan said: "India today, has no dearth of talent, it's just that they need to be mentored, trained and guided in the right direction. We at CAP will ensure new standards for coaching and development of cricket in India."

Besides coaching, CAP is also focusing on nutrition, physical development of the kids who enrolls with the academy. Coaches will also be trained to gauge the strength and
weakness of a kid on the field.

Irfan said: "Many a times, a talent is lost out due to improper guidance or the coaches' inability to gauge these important aspects and guide them accordingly. We at CAP will ensure each child gets the required attention."
