Pathway Document

Cricket Wales are pleased to communicate changes to the Player Pathway which will come into effect from the 1st November 2018. The document attached aims to provide much of the detail and rationale behind the changes, in addition to how and when the winter programme will be implemented. 

Pathway Document

The structure has been the culmination of an extensive collaboration and consultation process with key personnel within the ECB, Cricket Wales, Glamorgan County Cricket Club and Regional Cricket in addition to practitioners within the field of youth and athletic development. Written feedback was also obtained and discussed with parents, coaches and managers across the country.

Whilst the fine detail of some areas are still being worked through, Cricket Wales are keen to convey the pathway to our cricketing community, as the season reaches its halfway point ahead of the upcoming winter. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the development of this new structure and are delighted at the overwhelming amount of positive feedback it has generated. We firmly believe that the new pathway moves Welsh Cricket in an exciting direction for our youngsters (and country) to benefit from for many, many years to come.

Cricket Wales acknowledges and accepts that the first year of change represents an important opportunity to understand whether the pathway is making the impact we intend it to. Consequently, we will continue to analyse and review its implementation and so any feedback from the Welsh Cricketing network will be warmly received.
