Under 16 cricket

We believe that every youngster who shows the right level of skill and aptitude should get the opportunity to put their skills up against others of a similar standard. This, along with constant monitoring and reviews from the young players, their parents and team mates provides a safe environment for development.

Where appropriate, NCCC will encourage youngsters under the age of 16 to play competitive, hard ball cricket. This may mean participating in senior games – but only if they can be fully integrated in to a game.
