Cricket Australia Boys Pathway Rookie Program09/09/2016
The Cricket Australia Pathway Rookie Program is designed to develop the best 14 to 17-year-old boys nationally to assist them to realise their cricketing potential.
The opportunities available to the boys are ranked bronze, silver and gold. Everyone begins on bronze and earns promotion to silver and gold based on performance and attitude.
Bronze is delivered locally at state and territory level. Silver offers the opportunity to attend a camp at the National Cricket Centre and gold offers a touring opportunity through the Australian Under 16 Team.
Most of the program is spent working on cricketing skills through specialist coaching sessions in home states. The boys also receive fitness programs, nutrition and performance psychology support and development as well as an individual player program and individual assessments throughout the eight month program.
More information on high performance development programs for boys can be found at Cricket Australia.
