Service Providers Pro Coach Yorkshire have confirmed that the 2022-23 UAJCA Winter Academy remains scheduled to go ahead with its first session scheduled for 20th January 2023. [7:00pm] for those that have registered for a place.








Service Providers to UAJCA, Pro Coach Yorkshire have now sadly confirmed that the 2021 UAJCA Winter Academy has finally been frustrated by the Virus, and all alternative options that might have enabled opportunities for young player development this winter and preparation for the season, have also expired. 


UAJCA joins with YCB in thanking everyone for their prolonged patience and understanding as the battle against the virus has kept us all in Lockdown. Fortunately no payments for the Winter Academy have been levied for all the bookings and so no refunds are due.


The indoor Hall has already been booked for the 2022 Academy when we hope the increased numbers booking in 2021 can be maintained.

Understanding The Pathways Coaching Programme.

May be an image of text that says "YORKSHIRE PATHWAYS"The Pathways Coaching Programme [each year Jan-Mar] is a high level coaching programme operated by YCB appointed coaches. Its purpose is to provide elite players with the best coaching, so that they may achieve the highest possible standard of cricket. The District Centre’s (pre-Xmas) are for players that have either represented their District side or played in the Yorkshire Junior Cricket Festival. During the 7 weeks of coaching at a District Centre an assessment is made by the coaches to decide whether or not players are of suitable standard to progress to the Bronze Elite Centre (post-Christmas) where they will join up with County players who have been graded at either Bronze, Silver or Gold standard.

It is NOT a stepping stone to County Age Group or District Team selection. The programme utilises an assessment process which grades students at either Bronze, Silver or Gold standard. Only players who have reached the Gold standard may expect CAG selection, if progress is maintained. The only guarantee for students at Bronze or Silver standard is that they will be automatically invited to District Cricket trials.
