Academy Framework

The diagram is designed to highlight the potential outcomes of each of the Academy’s development stages. It is not intended to indicate a selection pathway or the only pathway to those phases. A player’s time in each stage is determined by their readiness to transition and develop. This may or may not be a linear progression.

Our Cricket Model

The model we use to identify and track players within the Academy and potential players focus on SIX essential pillars with equal weighting between them. The model is the pillar of identifying players, tracking progress, creating individual plans, and communicating to players, parents, and coaches. Our program is created around a holistic view of player development where all elements of this model are considered when getting to understand or know a player and the current stage of development.

Balance Participation And Competition

Participation in Sreenidhi Cricket Program strives to provide a high level of involvement for all players to ensure the enjoyment of the game and create opportunities for skill development. As players progress through age groups, cricket will become progressively more competitive. As a guide, the Sreenidhi strives to achieve the following balance between participation and competition for the various age groups:

It is within the above framework that the following guidelines for each age group have been developed. While all coaches and managers will strive to follow the guidelines for each age group. In addition, there are a number of association rules regarding the maximum individual contributions (e.g. batsmen retiring once a certain number of runs have been scored or bowlers being able to bowl a maximum number of overs) that regulate matches and assist in ensuring broad participation.
