Talent & Pathways

The Australian Cricket Pathway is a whole of sport framework. It supports the development of cricketers at all levels and allows for the establishment of associated competitions to deliver desired skill outcomes.

The Australian Cricket Pathway is a whole of sport framework. It supports the development of cricketers at all levels and allows for the establishment of associated competitions to deliver desired skill outcomes.The Australian Cricket Pathway is highly inclusive. Cricketers of all abilities, male or female, young or old are embraced by the focus on learning and skill. The ability to integrate lifestyle, participation and elite performance is central to the framework.

The Australian Cricket Pathway will help Queensland Cricketers navigate their journey through various competitions and programs. This journey has previously been a costly and complicated process for many players. Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket (QC) will support identified players (12-18 yrs) to transition from club cricket to representative cricket in a clear and affordable way.The aim of the Australian Cricket Pathway is to support all cricketers. It provides talented and dedicated cricketers the chance to realise their potential, help form strong competitive Queensland teams and hopefully one day don the baggy green.

The previous State Underage Championships run and paid for by QC include the U13 & U14 Male State Championships, the U15 & U16 Male State Challenges and the U13, U15 & U17 Female State Challenges.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Queensland Cricket’s financial position for the year 2020 has been altered along with so many other businesses within the country. Consequently, our junior pathways have been altered for the junior representative cricket season 2020-21. The QC junior pathways events have had to adapt and adopt a User Pays model.

Under this model, junior participants will pay an increase in Player Fees from previous years in order to attend a Phase Two (2) event for the respective age groups upcoming in December & January.
