Our aspirations are our possibilities
Welcome to the North East Wales Junior Cricket Development (NEWJCD) website.
NEWJCD provides a structure for junior Cricket at both club and representative level for boys and girls across the Region.
The NEWJCD Junior Leagues are well established and provide structured junior cricket at under 9, under 11, under 13 and under 15 level age groups. Under 9 fixtures are played as friendly matches to encourage the development of young players at an early age. At under 11, under 13 and under 15 levels, there are competitive leagues but the major emphasis is still on player development and teaching young players to grow and progress within the virtues of the Spirit of the Game and all that it entails.
The Region runs representative teams from U10 through to U15 age groups for boys . Clubs nominate young players for these age group teams and during the Autumn/Winter months, Regional Coaches work with them before determining their age group squads for the following summer. The success of NEWJCD representative teams has grown over the years and our teams now compete very strongly with our South Wales counterparts.
Girls cricket will again be prominent in 2018. Many girls continue to play in club boys junior teams but we are mindful that our girls need to be playing and developing as a girls unit and this has enabled us to re-establish our girls teams at Regional level. 2017 was again a very successful year in this respect for our girls 'hub' which we will continue to progress during the 2018 summer season. During the winter, the gitls move inside for a programme of indoor training running through to March.
Girls new to the game, along with those already in the system, train and compete together to develop and enhance the cricket experience for girls within the Region. Club and Regional coaches will again run the programme. We would encourage as many girls as possible to become involved. Prior cricket knowledge or skills are not essential, as all will be taught and coached within the NE Wales Girls cricket 'hub.’
This is a wonderful, exciting and ground breaking opportunity for any girls who want to take up the game (see Girls Junior Cricket section for more details)
