Elite Cricket | Overview




The Western Australian Cricket Association offers an extensive range of elite team representation opportunities for both male and female athletes at both senior and an underage level. The teams and programs utilise facilities at both the WACA and our new high performance venue at Murdoch University.
 
Male Cricket
The State representative pathway opportunities are:
  • State Under 17
  • State Under 19
  • Futures League
  • Western Warriors - which includes the RYOBI One-Day Cup and the historic Bupa Sheffield Shield competition.
  • Perth Scorchers - KFC T20 Big Bash League
Since entering the national competition in the middle of the last century, the Warriors have proved to be an outstanding success in both short and longer versions of the game, and in providing players for the national team. The Warriors were Sheffield Shield runners-up in 2013-14.

The Perth Scorchers lifted the 2013-14 Big Bash League title and made the Finals of the two previous editions. The club has qualified for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Champions League Twenty20 competitions.

High Performance Programs
We also conduct many quality high performance programs that provide the pathway to our representative State team opportunities. These programs include our Talented Athlete Program (TAP), and the Emerging Warriors Program (EWP).

District Cricket
District Cricket is the pathway competition players need to be playing to gain entry into our high performance pathway programs and teams.
 
Female Cricket
We also offer great opportunities for females to represent our State. We enter junior teams in national competitions at Under 15 & Under 18 age levels. The Western Fury (our open women’s team) play in the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) in a 50-over competition and also compete in a separate T20 competition.
 
A variety of high performance programs are offered to our emerging female players including talent camps, the Talented Athlete Program and the Girls Country Cricket Carnival.
