Junior Development Squads (JDS) provide young and enthusiastic beginners with the skills and knowledge to become hardball-ready cricketers. These skills and the confidence for players to use them are cultivated during a 5 year holistic coaching programme, using skill set drills, small sided games, video feedback and matchplay. The programmes values and the promotion of key life skills (including respect, discipline, commitment, patience, perseverance, confidence, listening and an instilled work ethic, combined with the principles of the Long Term Athlete Development Mode (LTAD,) ensures that your child will grow not only as a cricketer but also as a young person too.
