USA Cricket is pleased to announce the next two legs of the Men’s Senior & Youth Zonal Trials this weekend in North Carolina and Illinois. 

The action gets underway today, Friday 16th October, with the Youth Trials in Morrisville Friends Pavilion Indoor Cricket Center outside Raleigh, North Carolina. ahead of the Men’s Senior Trials on Saturday 17th October which will be held at Church Street Park, Morrisville.  The BPL Cricket Stadium in Bolingbrook, Chicago is the venue in Illinois with the Men’s Senior Trials on Saturday 17th October, followed by the Youth Trials on Sunday 18th October.

There was a successful start to the USA Cricket Men’s Senior & Youth Zonal Trials last weekend, with the first three trials taking place in New York, St. Louis and Seattle respectively. The trials taking place this weekend are the 4th and 5th of a total of 14 trials over the coming weeks. The remaining centers are Albany, Somerset, Baltimore, Atlanta, Tampa, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles (venue tbc) and the Bay Area. 

USA Cricket had more than 1,200 player nominations from 66 Leagues and 70 Academies, and the USA Zonal Selectors narrowed that list down to invite 30 players to attend each of the 14 Men’s and 14 Men’s Youth Trials.

The trials all occur over a full day and involve an assessment of fitness and skills both in individual and team scenarios, all of which will be closely observed by USA Cricket representatives and selectors and captured on video for further review.  Participants will be allocated into smaller groups in order to meet the COVID protocols that have been developed specifically for these trials and to ensure that they each have a sufficient opportunity to showcase their talent.  

Also taking place this weekend on October 16 and 17 in the Bay Area on the West Coast,  is the fifth of six Women and Girls Talent ID Events. For further information about these events, please click here
