Youth Policy

Due to an increase in interest from players under 18 years old, and as the Casuals previously have not had a Youth Policy we have asked for guidance from Welsh Cricket Association (WCA).

Because of duty of care issues and the increased responsibility that is required, the Casuals have decided that regrettably we can not include members under the age of 18 (unless in exceptional circumstances).

There are number of clubs in South Wales that have Youth teams (check the Welsh Cricket Association - WCA website). Youth players will benefit more from playing in a youth team, with players of similar ages and with clubs that are able to invest the time and attention into developing young talent.
