Regional Surrey Cricket Academies 2022-23
Our three regional Cricket Academies in Surrey are the top level of our pathway and are open to all hard ball players in school years 5-13, subject to a trial.
We have one Regional Academy in East Surrey, one in West Surrey and a new Girls Cricket Academy.
The Academies aim to fill the gap between club and county. Players are often former county performance players, those who have trialled but been unsuccessful, or those players who are at the strongest end of their club team and looking to be stretched more.
Some new players may be invited to trial for a place and those successful will be committing to the full year ahead.
Regular Tier 1 Surrey Junior Cricket Championship (SJCC) club players may not need to trial
Whole winter training either at Richard Challoner School (East), Fullbrook School (West). There is no training in the summer

Intra-Academy summer competitions
Umpiring and scoring training opportunities
Duke of Edinburgh Award opportunities
We also have opportunities to play some matches for the Academy indoors over the winter and outdoors over the summer.
Club matches always take precedence over Academy games as we are here to support clubs, not to compete with them.
Due to the potential clashes with club commitments, these matches are an optional extra to the core program, so if you can’t play in matches as you have club games or other commitments, it’s not an issue.
We will be looking to run approximately 5 or 6 matches in the summer for the U10-U14 age groups, and there will be 5 matches in each of the Academy Festival weeks in August.
Additional potential match opportunities for U13-U19 players: -
1st XI Surrey Downs League (Saturday, 40 overs per side)
2nd XI Sunday Adult Matches (Typically 40 overs per side)
Mini–Test Matches in the May half-term & summer holidays (2-day, 2 innings)
1st XI Academy festival week tour matches in South East England
This is a full year program paid for in instalments, so by making the initial payment you are committing to the program to the end of August and making all of the payments below.
Annual Membership is £365 payable on sign up, then 2 further payments of £365 to be paid on or before 28th November & 28th February.
For year 11 & 13 students in exam years there is the option of a reduced membership around studies. Please contact us if you would like more information on this.
