Sydney University Cricket Club (SUCC) is excited to release its A. W. Green Shield Program for the 2016-17 season.

The 8-month campaign will commence with SUCC's popular Winter Development Program (WDP) commencing on Wednesday 27th April at the newly opened Martin Lambert Nets in Sydney Uni's new TAG Family Grandstand (formerly No. 2 Oval) from 4.30pm to 6.00pm.

With four mid-week sessions and two weekend sessions, the WDP will provide players aged 12 - 15 years with the opportunity to develop their game under the guidance of experienced coaches and senior player mentors.

Following these sessions, an A. W. Green Shield train-on squad will be selected to participate in a targeted pre-season program. Sessions will be held on the last Sunday of each month and will include strength & conditioning, skills sessions and various specialist workshops.

The final A. W. Green Shield squad will be announced on Tuesday 20th September and will continue to train on Thursday afternoons together with the full Club. Further workshops will be held on the final Thursday of each month from September to November.

The squad will also get the opportunity to play a minimum of two practice matches in the lead-up to the start of the A. W. Green Shield season in mid-December.

The program will be led by current Operations Manager, Dale Bryant. Dale has significant experience coaching high performance youth squads during his tenure as a Development Manager with Queensland Cricket. Dale will make use of key senior club players to act as mentors for the young group.
