The primary focus of the programme is to promote the highest quality of performance on an individual and team basis in order to develop cricketers to play for Surrey and England.

Some of the cricketers to have emerged through the Surrey County Cricket Club Academy and Performance Programme in recent years include Rory Burns, Ollie Pope and Jason Roy.

Our department oversees Performance Courses, District Cricket, County Age Group (CAG) cricket from which the most talented of these cricketers progress into the Emerging Players Programme. 15 graduates of the pathway are currently part of Surrey’s County Cricket Club’s professional staff.

Three women have progressed through Surrey’s pathway to reach international honours.
