Performance Stage

This stage includes players within the under 17 age range and above. Within our pathway we have under 17s who play in an ECB performance competition.

Players will need to be physically and mentally robust to develop and perform at this stage as they look to compete in higher level cricket.

Players within these age groups will be expected to have higher levels of skill and game understanding/awareness than previous stages, although players will still be developing and there will still be a focus on this. Players will be expected to understand what impact their performance can have on a result.

There will be winter programmes available for players at U17 level. Currently there are rules in place t play a small number of under 18s within the under 17s competition.

This will be followed by a small number of internal development games which will likely involve the best senior players in the county which will act as high level competition for the best players in Cornwall and preparation for the under 17 performance league.

By performing to a high level within this stage players will highlight themselves as players that have potential to play in the Cornwall senior team and involvement within Western Storm.
