Premier Cricket Program Update

Carlton -grade -cricket -shot ARTICLE

In June, we launched the ACA Premier Cricket Program again for the 2017-18 Season. Excitingly we have expanded the program into Female premier cricket this season. The program is designed to support ACA members by retaining and harnessing the skills, experience and knowledge of ACA Members to identify, instruct and inspire talent through the premier cricket pathway.

First round expressions closed on Monday 31st July.

We have had an overwhelming response from both premier cricket clubs and ACA members around the country.

To date we have received applications for 107 of the 124 club grants which is set to see over 150 ACA Members engage in premier cricket clubs across the country. We are excited to see over 70 applicants set to engage in the program for the first time for the 2017-18 season.
This is a terrific start for the expanded program and premier cricket as a whole as it has kept or reengaged 70 + skilled, experienced and knowledgeable ACA members in playing or coaching roles that may otherwise have been lost from the Premier Cricket pathway.
Maintaining this talent can only provide a positive influence and help to achieve one of the programs main objectives of strengthening premier cricket around the country.
