The Hilton High-Performance Training Programme is now recognized as the finest available in the North East, with twenty NUSC graduates in 1st class cricket, and further ten graduates past or present international cricketers.


The yearly twenty-four member intake continue to work through an extensive six-month programme with coaches, mentors, and tutors to cover every facet of their game to help to prepare them for the challenges of international cricket as amateurs in the summer. 

The club also provides expert pastoral support for academic, apprenticeship, placements, gap year options, job, and career development for those members seeking to take their lives forward.


2017-8 staff coaches include

ECB Level 3 coaches Ronny Boyd, Ian Smith, and Steve Williams

Former England U19, Durham and Derbyshire fast bowling all-rounder Ian Hunter.  

Former PCA Player of the Year, and Current Durham CCC star Chris Rushworth.

Scotland International Captain Kyle Coetzer

SportsEd Director and Biomechanics expert Ivor Harkin.

FA Referee and Sports Psychologist Adam Nichol.

Equally, much of HHPTP's charm remains in it being an ‘adventure’ for players...

Each week they will have a different development theme and someone coming in to help them.  It might be a boxing fitness session with the European Champions corner crew, fielding outdoors or, as has happened in November 2014, international cricketers like Scott Borthwick, World Cup Record holder Kyle Coetzer (see below) coming in to lead inspiring masterclasses.

However, sadly due to growing concerns over the "surprising similarities" we are finding in other academies programme to specialist NUSC work/phrases/session plans, aligned to the alarming growth in photographs being used to promote other academies, the decision has been taken to cut back on all marketing/promotion of HHPTP to non members.
