FOUR of the Shoalhaven District Junior Cricket Association's top prospects have been rewarded with selection in Cricket NSW's Greater Illawarra Zone youth academy squad.
Berry-Shoalhaven Heads' Alec Dobson, Max Carr-McCarron, Tom Fletcher and Jackson Ingram are all part of the 22-player squad, which will be coached by Mitch Calder.
Joining this quartet in the development squad will be Illawarra's Angus Campbell, Bailey Abela, Daniel Wark, Jack McDonald, Jayden Zahra-Smith, Josh Garnero, Michael Amadio, Nic Nicastri, Ollie Needham, Rhys Cattle, Ryan Cattle and Tom Williams, South Coast's Baxter McDonald, Blake Mackrell, Jake Monie and Liam Mackrell and Highlands' Hayden Willebrand and James Smith.
As part of the squad, the 22 athletes will undergo a holistic off-season training regime, to ensure they are ready to hit the ground running for the 2021-22 season - including physical preparation, skill acquisition across all facets, cognitive knowledge of the game, tactical strategies, psychological preparation and attitude development.
