Youth Cricket

 

Summerleas Eagles will support youth cricket program much-admired among other sporting organisations which provides a clearly defined career pathway for elite-level young players.

For young men, the pathway includes the Emerging Players Squad (EPS) for players aged 13-15, and the State Under 17 and Under 19 programs. For young women, the pathway leads to Under 15 and Under 18 national titles. Through these key development years SECC's most promising young players receive the very best of coaching and guidance before graduating to the even more competitive world of Open cricket

The likes of Shane Watson, Andrew Symonds, James Hopes and Nathan Hauritz have progressed through each level of the pathway in Queensland and gone on to represent Australia at Test or one-day international level. And many others have enjoyed the fruits of the program on route to a long and fruitful career.

There are junior trials and representative programs which provide opportunities for the better-performed youngsters to progress from zone and regional teams through to the Primary Schools program and ultimately into the Emerging Players Squad.
