The competition moves into Round 3 this weekend and will be played as a 50 overs per side fixture for the remaining rounds of this season.
The tournament allows the best in the region to play against their peers and allows Cricket ACT and the wider community to see the next generation of talent being produced locally. Head Coach of Cricket ACT Kyle Piper with his team of coaches were in attendance to each game during round 1 and 2.
“The standard of play in rounds 1 and 2 was very pleasing and showed that there are plenty of aspiring players in the region,” Piper said.
“This competition forms a critical selection piece for players aiming for higher honours tournaments that are coming up in January and form an entry point to the Cricket Australia pathway.”
The Elite Under 19’s also allows local Premier Cricket Clubs a chance to see new and emerging players to potentially join their club for future seasons.

“The opportunity for players to play on 1st grade facilities, playing with and against their peers whilst being mentored by credentialed coaches and senior players from within our community provides a great experience for our Under 19’s that they may not have had access to previously.”
