Great Southern Cricket Future Directions

The Great Southern Cricket Future Directions Project, supported by the WACA, Department of Local Government, Sport and Culture, and the Country Cricket Board, aims to improve and grow the game of cricket in the Great Southern region.

Project objectives:

  • Identify the number and type of players, clubs and competition structures within the Great Southern;
  • Identify the best governance and delivery models for the region;
  • Establish a strong base to support the growth of cricket in the future; and
  • Encourage feedback and input from all cricket players and supporters

The WACA would like to thank all Great Southern Cricket stakeholders who contributed to the Great Southern Future Directions Project.

Through surveys, workshops and individual consultations Kim Buttfield Consulting has been able to collect valuable information and insights in to the current state of cricket in the Great Southern as well input to future direction in relation to governance, strategy, game development and pathways for the region.

The report from this project has now been completed by the consultants and can be found here.

The WACA will now work closely with Great Southern stakeholders to review the feedback and recommendations put forward in the report to inform future actions and priorities.
This project has provided a great opportunity for Great Southern Cricket to build a strong foundation for the future, one that is underpinned by good governance, engaged stakeholders, participation growth, strong competitions, and clear, comprehensive pathways.

We encourage you to take some time to review the report and discuss with your local club, association or Board representatives to help drive a united approach to cricket across the region. The WACA Cricket Manager, Tim Edmunds is also available to discuss the report and its recommendations.

The WACA would like to thank Kim Buttfield and Christine Grogan from Kim Buttfield Consulting for their work on this project, providing an independent perspective throughout. We also acknowledge the support provided by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Great Southern Office to this project and cricket more broadly in the Great Southern.
