The Shine's Cricket Academy (SCA) was founded IN 2002 by Mr Shine S.S, who is the Executive Director and Chief Coach of the academy. The Academy initially aimed to provide opportunities for developing the young cricketing talents of the Loyola School, Trivandrum. However, in the better interest of the Game of Cricket, the facilities were thrown open to deserving kids of other schools in the city. The Academy has turf, cement and matt wickets for net practice sessions.
It was initially located at Loyola Schools premises in the name of Loyola Cricket Academy, Sreekariyam, Trivandrum. But for the benefit of society and to nurture young talents, the academy has moved to St. Mary’s School Grounds, Pattom, Trivandrum.
Our vision is to nurture and mould next generation of young talented cricketers from all facets of the society with the right attitude and respect to the game.
