The Gold Coast Academy of Sport Program is proud to partner with Queensland Cricket to provide a long-term talent development program for players from 13 to 15 years. We are pleased to advise that the GCAS program will be aligned with the Bronze Rookie program being conducted by Queensland Cricket. Players, coaches and administrators will receive opportunities to be involved in higher levels of representative cricket at local and regional representation.
On the local scene, GCAS will also be partnering with Gold Coast District Cricket Club to offer an U/16 program which is linked with the Lord’s Taverners competition.
The GCAS is also very excited to be in a position to launch a Women’s program to help identify and develop those female athletes who would like to develop their skills within this sport. The age groups being targeted in this initial squad is U/14 and U/15.
The program has been developed to provide athletes with targeted long term skill, physical and off-field development
Each annual program runs from May to September with regular squad training sessions focused on individual skill development. In addition to on-field sessions and competition opportunities, athletes receive access to educational seminars to assist with their personal development off the playing field
