Squad members have been selected based on their performances in club cricket and during the TIO Junior and Senior Strike League competitions held earlier in the year.

 

A strength and conditioning program will commence in mid-November followed by specialist skill sessions and practise matches to ensure players are as physically and mentally prepared leading into the Championships.

 

A number of squad members are currently playing in South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland and will connect with Darwin based members and coaches regularly and participate in sessions via video link.

 

NT Cricket’s Head of Cricket, Darren Treumer, said while the Under 19 Championships was yet to be confirmed for April 2021, pending COVID-19 restrictions around the nation, it was wonderful for the NT players selected to work towards a common goal of representing the Territory with pride.

 

“There is no doubt we have the talent in this group of young men, and we now need to believe in ourselves to perform on the National stage. 

 

“The five month lead in time allows us to manage player workloads, identify any weaknesses and strengthen parts of our game to set us up for success”, said Treumer.

 

Marc Calkin has been appointed Head Coach of the Under 19 team with Jason Bremner appointed Assistant Coach and Coen McKinnon appointment as team Manager.
