In June, SACA unveiled the Development Academy during a celebration dinner to recognise the achievements of the South Australian players who participated in the National Cricket Inclusion Championships earlier this year.

The Academy will aim to broaden the number of players within the Inclusion Team network, while also nurturing the cricketing abilities of these players.

State representative teams including the South Australian Aboriginal Women’s Cricket Team and Disability Teams will have access to state of the art training facilities at Adelaide Oval during their preparation for their respective championships.

Training for the 2018 National Cricket Inclusion Championships and the 2018 National Indigenous Cricket Championships will begin in September, following the selection of successful participants.

All teams are currently seeking Team Managers and Coaches to help manage and develop players from each squad.

To find out more about available Team Manager and Coach positions, as well as how to apply, visit SACA’s Coaching Opportunities page.

Individuals wishing to trial for the SACA Development Academy can simply register on day one of trials at the Indoor Centre at Adelaide Oval.

For more information about Development Academy trials, contact SACA Community Engagement Coordinator Amy Wiseman at or on 8300 3296.
