About Our Membership

Take the first step towards realizing your cricketing dreams.

Lifelong Cricketing Journey

When kids pick up a bat and ball, we want them to know that they can follow their dreams. Our commitment is to do everything in our power to support them on this journey and make their dreams a reality.

Join the South Africa Cricket Academy and embark on a transformative cricketing journey that will shape your skills, character, and future in the game. Take the first step towards realizing your cricketing dreams.

As well as ensuring the game is fun, inclusive and accessible to play, we are also dedicated to helping players from all backgrounds to reach their full potential, and in doing so continue the legacy of great players who have themselves inspired the next generation.

Lifelong Cricketing Journey: Our academy aims to instill a love for the game that lasts a lifetime. Beyond the training programs, we provide ongoing support, guidance, and resources to our alumni, nurturing their cricketing journey even after they leave the academy. We take pride in being a part of their success stories.

To do this it is important to create a clear pathway from our entry-level programs to representative competitions right through to the national teams. While not everyone can represent South Africa, players should know that if they have the passion, dedication, and commitment, there is a clear passage from the backyard to the Proteas.

Pathway to Success: For aspiring cricketers with ambitions to play at higher levels, our academy offers a clear pathway to success. We provide guidance on talent identification, player profiling, and exposure to talent scouts and selectors. Our track record speaks for itself, with several of our graduates going on to represent regional, national, and international teams.

The principles of the Pathway are:

  1. The focus is on enhancing players’ enjoyment and retention by:
    • Encouraging players to compete at their skill level (age is indicative only)
    • Graduated player numbers to increase activity levels for all players by providing more space on the field and game opportunities
    • Graduated complexity of match formats to support skill development
    • Providing options of game duration to suit players and families.
  2. Consistent formats are aligned with the Cricket South Africa Pathway competency framework.
  3. Representative cricket is designed to stretch the best players. This includes Regional, Provincial, and National.
