Shooting Stars Program
The Shooting Stars program is an annual development program for the best young female cricket talent in Australia. The national selectors select 20 athletes for the program each year.
Participants are selected from underage championships, Women’s National Cricket League and Cricket Australia Cup competitions.
The program is made up of a number of camps a year held at the National Cricket Centre, state visits by the head coach, satellite training sessions, access to the National Cricket Centre specialist camps and an international series played either home or away.
The program is managed by the Australian Women’s Team Head Coach and the Female Pathway Manager with state and territory coaches involved in the camps and monitoring of the squad.
Under 15 and Under 18 Talent and Development Camp Squads
The Australian Under 15 Development Camp Squad and the Under 18 Talent Camp Squad are selected by the Australian Youth Selection Panel based on recommendations from State and Territory Associations and performances at the Under 15 and Under 18 National Championships. Members of this squad are invited to attend a Cricket Australia Talent Camp at the National Cricket Centre.
