More Fun, More Action, Better Skills

Junior Formats

Junior Playing Formats

Cricket Scotland are excited to be introducing the new Junior Cricket Playing formats and pathway for the 2018 season.

The changes have been introduced as part of a wider strategy to transform how junior cricket is delivered from ages 5-16 years. The new pathway and formats will provide far better playing and learning experiences for boys and girls in the formative years of their cricket journey that we are confident will lead to more kids playing, and staying, in the game.

The new formats are based on overwhelming research from Cricket Australia that an age/stage appropriate pathway will provide vastly improved experiences for children that will lead to more fun, more action and better skills.

We believe the new programmes and formats will help cricket remain relevant for younger generations and provide a uniformity of experience across the country so everyone can enjoy our fantastic sport!

Role of the Coach

We want our young players to have outstanding cricket experiences and our junior coaches are crucial to this. Learn more about your role as a junior coach when delivering the junior formats
