Welcome to the West Area Cricket Association, (WACA)

WACA delivers youth cricket in partnership with Sussex Cricket Limited and all representative Cricket across the County is divided into four areas, West, North, South and East

The aim of area cricket is to produce talented cricketers, and all four Area coaching programmes are delivered to players aged between 9 and 15, with our aim to produce the next Sussex professional cricketer. The area programme also acts as a bridge between club cricket and county age group cricket, with the emphasis on nurturing potential and player development

The West area leagues are also organised by the committee, with teams playing throughout the summer, starting with soft ball pairs cricket for the younger age groups, to hard ball U16 matches

Once again, we will be running Junior Indoor Cricket Leagues throughout the winter at The Six Villages Sports Centre & in Worthing for U10s, U12s and U14s. This is a great way our young players can develop their skills and have great fun in a fast moving cricket match

Identifying and nurturing potential talent by clubs is vitally important. Assessments for the Western Warrior squads takes place at the end of the summer. Players can trial for the following pre Christmas training squads:

  • U10
  • U11
  • U12/13
  • U14/15

Our Pre-Christmas training progamme leads to County age group selection. Pre-Christmas, the Area programme is overseen and delivered by Matt Parsons, along with a select group of Area coaches, who deliver the programme across all four Areas, providing consistency and a level playing field across Sussex

Post-Christmas, Matt and his team will select two Western Warrior sides to receive another 9-week coaching programme, that runs into the summer, when matches begin. The U12/13 and U14/15 sides, at this point, merge with the Northern Knights, creating a combined ‘Spartans’ side. Both U11 teams play in the Sussex Area Festival against the North, South and East Area sides throughout the summer

Many of our young players have been selected for the Sussex County youth squads and Emerging Player Programme. It is always satisfying to see former area players having success at senior level with their clubs, there is much evidence of this within the senior league

The hard working committee, who are all voluntary, organise and administer all Area activities. All of this is self-funding. If you feel you would like to help in anyway please contact Kev Foster directly
