Junior Coastal Cricket Academy (JCCA) was established in 2005 with the main aim to teach youngsters cricket. As the youngsters grew older, JCCA split into two divisions being the Academy and the Club. The Academy teaches children from the tender age of 5 years up to U/19 level, the Club is fed from the academy and compete in the yearly Coastal League cricket. Players can start joining the club from the age of 15, but if they show potential, younger players are also allowed to play at club level. The club currently have players as young as 12 years old with the eldest player being 43 years old. From 2005 up to 2014 JCCA competed in the annual Coastal League without much success, as it was a young club and they played with mostly youngsters. The management of the club however continued to sup-port their players and motivated them to achieve the success as stated below: During the 2015/2016 season JCCA won the T20 Coastal & National League and came 2nd in the 40 Overs Coastal League. During the 2016/2017 season JCCA unfortunately experienced some growing pains and ended 3rd in the T20 Coastal League and 4th in the 40 Overs Coastal League. During the 2017/2018 season JCCA won the T20 Coastal League with an 8 out of 8 games win (this includes the Coastal semi-final & Final), and won the 40 Overs Coastal League with a 6 out of 8 games win. They ended up 2nd in both formats in the National League. During the 2018/2019 season JCCA won the T20 Coastal League as well as the 40 Overs League with only one game loss. The National T20 and 40 Over matches must still be played.
JCCA currently have 3X players who will participate in the U/19 World Cup qualifiers team, being Victor van der Watt, Dian Neethling and Ettienne Beukes. JCCA’s coach & captain was appointed as the U/19 World Cup Qualifiers squad’s Manager while JCCA’s team manager & scorer will be a scorer at the same qualifiers as well as the 2nd Division Senior Men’s qualifiers.
Apart from the U/19 National players, JCCA also has a lot of National players in the various junior age groups.
JCCA’s management herewith wish our U/19 National players best of luck with the qualifiers. We are extremely proud of all our National players their achievements.
The team will continue to work hard and keep the youngsters flowing through the system.
