Operating as a non-profit organisation, SACA will apply a three pronged approach to tackling the inequalities found within the talent development systems in cricket across England and Wales.
SACA will provide squads of BSA male cricketers aged 18+ with an elite cricket programme to assist progression to professional status.
It will also provide a squad of BSA female cricketers aged 13-15 with a bespoke development programme to assist progression onto talent pathway programmes.
SACA will provide male and female BSA coaches with the opportunity to gain experience of working with elite players as well as gain the qualifications necessary to progress into the professional game.
SACA will fund research to explore, evaluate & implement best practice in the construction of diverse & inclusive talent development programmes in men’s & women’s cricket, as well as barriers to progression into women’s cricket for BSA female cricketers.
