The program is designed to assist young cricketers on the Northern Beaches in achieving their full potential both on and off the cricket field. On the cricket field, the initiative is used to give a clear pathway for junior players as they progress from junior cricket on artificial wickets through to senior cricket on turf wickets. This enables young players to mature at a sustainable rate with correct support networks in place. Off the cricket field, the program has resulted in a number of worthwhile seminars regarding the HSC, selection policies and balancing life outside of cricket which involve key figures from both clubs and players who have been through such experiences.
It is a joint initiative between the Manly Warringah Waratahs, Warringah Cricket Club, Manly Warringah Junior Cricket Assocaition, and the Manly Warringah Cricket Association.
The Junior Pathway Program is an initiative set-up by a number of influential figures at both Manly Warringah Cricket Club and the Warringah Cricket Club. With people such as Mick Pawley, David Gainsford, Doug McGrath and Greg Boyer providing the backbone over a number of years, it has developed into a world club program.
2015/16 has seen a slight changing of the guard with Greg Boyer stepping down but Ross Denny taking over the Pathway Manager role. Ross has taken to the role like duck to water and cricket on the Northern Beach are very lucky to have him involved.
