County Girls

The Gloucestershire county girls programme covers the age groups of under 11, under 13, under 15 and under 17.

Supporting these are development squads at under 13 and 15 which have been set up to allow players with the potential to play county cricket in the future, access to high quality coaching and matches.

Each performance squad has a 12 week winter coaching programme to help progress their game and prepare for the forthcoming season.

In the summer the under 13, under 15, under 17 girls play in ECB T20 and one-day competitions. The younger age groups also attend a festival at Malvern College. This provides a great opportunity to play counties outside of those they face in their ECB competitions.

The under 11s and under 13 and under 15 development squads all play in friendly fixtures. These games are arranged with local counties and cricket clubs where we feel the players will get the right balance of challenge and development opportunities.

In addition to playing for their county age groups teams of our most promising youngsters also play for the Gloucestershire Women, who compete in the ECB County Championship and T20 competition.
