Junior Pathway

The next generation of Victorian stars

A highlight of many junior cricketers summer is the Pathway competition where they get to represent their region and play on the hallowed turf of the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Established in 1999, the much vaunted pathway program will be re-branded this summer to recognise the state's flagship sides.
 
From 2012-13 onwards, the respective boys and girls systems will be known as the Victorian Bushrangers and VicSpirit pathway programs.
 
The re-branding recognises the link between the feeder system and the need for emerging talent to aspire to play for the state's traditional teams.
 
The Victorian Bushrangers and VicSpirit pathway programs consist of a series of programs and competitions for talented cricketers starting at under-13 and moving through to senior cricket.
 
There are eight metropolitan and eight country regions that are represented in every pathway program meaning players can participate in pathway programs irrespective of where in Victoria they live. 

The Victorian Bushrangers Pathway Program has seven competition phases:

  • Under-13 School Sport Australia National Championships (Controlled by School Sports Victoria (SSV) with assistance from CV);
  • Under-14 State Championships (played in January on Premier 3rd & 4th XI grounds);
  • Under-15 School Sport Australia National Championships (Controlled by SSV with assistance from CV);
  • Under-16 Dowling Shield (played in January on Premier 1st & 2nd XI grounds);
  • Under-17 National Championships (played in December);
  • Under-18 State Championships (played in January on Premier grounds and in a VCCL region); and
  • Under-19 National Championships (played in January)

The VicSpirit Pathway Program has seven competition phases:
