General Information

Junior Cricket must encourage full participation and equal opportunity for all players.

Too many coaches are “categorising” players as a batter or a bowler too early and subsequently consigning these players to a specific position in the batting order and/or not bowling them, and consequently the player is not being developed to their possible full potential.

Coaches are strongly requested to ensure all players develop their skills and talent during their time in the JCB grades.
