Player Pathway


NT Cricket's Academy programs are held in Darwin and Alice Springs.

The NT Cricket Academy was established in 2019 as part of the NT Cricket Pathways program. The Academy program aims to enhance and further the development of players, coaches and umpires across the Territory, with an aspiration of the Territory producing the most elite talent per capita across Australian Cricket.

As an Academy Coach you are responsible for the design, plan and implementation of holistic development programs to talented players in the Darwin region from February to August 2022. There will only be a male Academy program in 2022 as the female pathway will focus on a range of specific skills sessions as apposed to an Academy style program.

Please contact Megan White should you like to discuss the coaching roles further, or on 0423 074 336.  

If you are interested in being involved in the Academy program, please complete the EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORM HERE.

The 2022 Darwin Academy is via invite only for players.
