Youth

Youth cricket at Abergavenny Cricket Club is crucial to the long term success and sustainability of local cricket. Without a strong commitment to Youth cricket there is no future for the game in Abergavenny. We invest a lot of time and effort in developing young cricketers who we hope will mature into senior players. Our track record is good, with both Mark Wallace and Michael Powell securing careers in first class cricket. However, our values also include fun and enjoyment, and we hope the young people that turn up to our regular Friday night training sessions continue to experience fun and enjoyment.

We also encourage girls and young people with a disability to join us.

The Abergavenny CC Academy (Ages 12-15) runs throughout the season on Mondays 6:00 – 8:00pm. These sessions are for the more talented young players who wish to further their cricket skills and receive additional mentoring and coaching from the Youth Coach, Geraint Leach.

The 2017 season will see the following teams :

From age 5 through to age 15. There are competitive leagues for the U9 (softball) U11, U13 and U15 teams. There are opportunities for girls at all levels.
