Following the recent emergence of a number of performance pathway players such as Kiran Carlson, Lukas Carey, Callum Taylor and Prem Sisodiya into the Glamorgan first XI, Glamorgan have launched a Junior Academy Programme in their quest to ensure the club continues to produce high-quality homegrown players.

This is the first of our elite programmes and is a 12-month programme.

Players are selected from the Wales U13 – U16 age groups through a rigorous observation process. Players will be selected on their current performance levels as well as their future potential.

A number of factors will be taken into account in the selection process including a players technical and tactical ability and potential, physical attributes and some desirable character traits associated with elite sport.

The players will follow a group coaching programme through the winter months and will also get strength and conditioning support and an introduction to sports psychology. During the summer players will play and train with their respective age group squads.
