The Emerging Redbacks program is designed to mirror the Redbacks on a reduced scale with the states most talented un-contracted cricketers, including Grade cricketers as well as ‘above the line’ youth players, being invited to join the program.
The Emerging Program was developed by SACA to address the gap between Grade cricket and First-class cricket. It is an elite talent identification system supported by complementary competition and training systems.
