Junior Formats Recommendations


Here are some useful resources to help you run your junior cricket programme using the new recommended Junior Formats.


Pitches & Ground-Set Up

Created specifically for junior coaches and ground staff, this guidance is designed to help you deliver an outstanding playing experience for children.


Managing Junior Games

Coaches, team managers, parents and young people are often asked to manage or umpire junior games. How games are managed has an impact on how much children enjoy their cricket and therefore want to keep playing. Whoever takes on the role of umpire, plays a vital role in making sure it is a fun and safe game for everyone.



Coaches are the people that create the outstanding experience for children, it’s about making cricket vibrant, welcoming and fun – the sort of activity your whole sporting community want to get involved in.
