Lancashire have produced a coaching programme which identifies the boys with the talent and dedication to play at county level.

Players who are under 17 years of age can apply for inclusion in the County Academy Programme (CAP).

Selection for the performance squads is carried out each year by the County boy’s manager, squad managers and coaches. Many factors are taken into consideration including performances, handicap, attitude and dedication.

Selection into a performance squad one year does not guarantee selection in future years as squads are continually reassessed.

Teams representing Lancashire in the various matches are selected from the performance squads and the County Academy Programme.

Under the guidance of Director of coaching Craig Lea boys are offered a high level of coaching from a very experienced team of coaches in the County.
