As one of Scotland’s leading cricket clubs we have identified the importance of:
The Grange Cricket Club being a catalyst for the creation of talent and opportunity within the game.
Promoting youth development and facilitating a pathway into senior and high performance cricket thus providing a sustainable club model going forward.
The Grange Cricket Academy athletic pathway recognises that development is unique to the individual. Whilst we continue to push the boundaries in performance, the most important factor for the developing athlete is to create the right environment where enjoyment and welfare underpin everything we do.
In recent times we have further developed our pathway to encompass a holistic approach as we recognise the need to assist the player in managing sport-life balance as they transition into adulthood.
The framework of our philosophy is developed from the 2017 Duty of Care in Sport Review (UK Government) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Consensus Statement on Youth Athletic Development.
