Regional Junior Cricket
Above junior club level there are nine Junior Regions in Wales who run representative boys teams from U10 to U15. Winter coaching programmes are offered with fixtures played against each other and in some instances against English County Cricket Boards.
To be considered for inclusion in a Regional Junior Squad, individuals must first perform well for their local club or team within local competition. For details of the nine Junior Regions in Wales visit:
National Development Centres (NDC’s)
Above the Junior Regions Cricket Wales run weekly NDC winter nets in South East Wales, South West Wales and North Wales. These sessions are for players either involved in Welsh Squads or under consideration, and are taken by experienced coaches, many of whom are former Glamorgan professionals.
Good performances for Wales or very strong performances for your Junior Region will provide the opportunity for NDC consideration.
NDC’s are overseen by the Cricket Wales Performance Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Wales Boys Squads are run at U11, U12, U13, U14, U15 and U17 level. Squad sessions are held each October, Christmas, February and Easter in preparation for a comprehensive fixture list against English County Cricket Board opposition.
Each age group has a Wales Coach and Manager with the overall programme overseen by the Cricket Wales Performance Manager email@example.com)
