Representative Cricket at all age levels is extremely important for the development of talented cricketers. It provides the opportunity for players to be challenged and have their skills tested to a greater extent than in normal competition. Many players (men and women) who progress along the pathway to first class and international standard have participated in representative cricket at various age levels.

Kent has age group squads for boys at under 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18. They play in ECB competitions and/or festivals in Taunton.

Each age group will have criteria for the managers and coaches to work towards, these are details in the squad tabs below.

Trialists are nominated by our Area Cricket Programme (ACP) coaches and managers following assessment in coaching or games. At some levels recommendations are accepted from scouts. All trialists are invited to attend autumn trials and following that squads are selected for the summer programme.

Our rules and what we expect

Kent Cricket sets high standards for itself and seeks to achieve them. In turn, we expect our young cricketers and their parents/guardians to meet those standards. It is important that we all know what we are delivering and what is expected of players. To clarify this, parents/guardians and players are required to sign up to a series of Charters and abide by our policies.

Each of these policies are issued to parents/guardians, as well as downloadable on the right of your screen ⟶
