You can find Zak Keogh standing at the end of the Stirling Oval nets every Tuesday and Thursday.
The 15-year-old is just watching - while occasionally sending down a medium pace delivery - and learning.
Because at the other end of the net stand the likes of John Rogers, Sam Taylor and Robbie Trickett - three of the premier batsmen in the Cricket ACT premier scene.
But he is not just some starry-eyed kid. Keogh is their teammate.
Together they will go in search of the Cricket ACT Gallop Cup when Weston Creek Molonglo meet Queanbeyan in the decider at Manuka Oval on Sunday.
But first comes day two of their Douglas Cup clash with ANU at ANU North Oval on Saturday.
Keogh will resume on 10 as Creek look to build a big lead having already secured first innings points. The fall of another wicket could see Rogers join him in the middle.
MORE CANBERRA SPORT
"I always want to be bowling and watching when John, Robbie and Sam are batting at training," Keogh said.
"That's the best way to learn, just from watching those people. I've got a lot of advice and help from Sam Taylor especially, and also John. It has been really good.
"Just watching John, Sam and those guys go about their business, it's a lot of learning just from watching them.
"Without them even telling me anything, if I can just copy what they're doing, I'm doing something right."
It may well set the south coast product on the path paved by Tasmanian all-rounder Mac Wright. After all, it was Mac's father Andrew that delivered Keogh to the capital.
"He was my coach when I lived in Pambula, and he was always pushing me to go to Weston Creek," Keogh said.
"It was when club cricket on the coast was not challenging me enough.
"I was always just trying to challenge myself in grade cricket, and when that stopped being a challenge, I thought I would come up to Canberra.
"It's a really good atmosphere at Weston Creek, the transition was pretty easy because they're all good blokes."
The family has since set up camp in Canberra and Keogh is hitting the books as he edges towards the end of year nine at Marist College.
MORE CANBERRA CRICKET
It has certainly made things a whole lot busier on the cricket front.
While some might not be so used to playing twice in as many days like Creek and Queanbeyan will do this weekend, it's par for the course in Koegh's case.
"The Marist stuff I do on Sunday, and I've got a Marist tournament coming up this week in Brisbane from Monday to Friday," Keogh said.
"There's a fair bit of Marist cricket going on."
And when it comes to playing first grade at 15?
"I'd like to think I have earned it," Keogh said.
"I have done a lot of training and I have learnt a lot from playing with people like Djali [Bloomfield] and John that have played at a professional level."
