USACA is proud to be associated with various campaigns and grassroots initiatives to promote youth cricket in the United States. These programs promote cricket to a younger generation who learn and grasp key skills that could potentially matriculate into an international cricketing career in the future.
USACA and its members are consistently aiming to grow awareness, interest and participation in cricket for junior and youth age groups across the country.
Various programs are being implemented by USACA’s members/leagues across the country. For more information regarding youth cricket in an area close to you, please visit the "Regions" page.
Currently, the largest youth competition is the New York City Public School Athletic League (PSAL). This high school tournament was implemented in 2008, with fourteen high schools participating. In the 2012 season twenty-six high schools competed with over 400 student players. Many of the players from this program have gone on to represent the New York region and the USA at the international level. For more information please visit: http://www.psal.org
