Performance Cricket Programmes
The Bedminster Emerging Talent (BET) programme is a coaching initiative first launched in 2018, with the intention of providing a pathway to first and second XI cricket for our clubs youth cricketers (aged 10 to 23).
The club is pleased to be continuing with a programme for 2019 with some notable changes. These changes have been made after evaluating the programme and with the goal of making it more fit for purpose. A clear lesson learnt from the pilot year were the varied coaching needs of the different age groups.
Consequently, we are introducing the Bedminster Upcoming Stars (BUS) programme for players (aged 10-13). The BET programme will now be aimed at 14 (school year 9) to 23-year olds and to reflect this change it has been renamed to Bedminster Emerged Talent programme.
Both programmes are by invitation only and are an addition to current youth coaching. Participants have been selected by the club coaching team based on a number of criteria, which are detailed on the relevant programme's page.
Despite the changes, the premise remains the same - to allow the clubs best young players to progress their skills and talents with the best possible coaches we can.
