May 15, 2024

USA Cricket is pleased to announce the official schedule and squads for this season’s Women’s Domestic Pathway Competition. This event will feature 15 formidable teams vying for victory in their respective regions.

Now in its fourth year, this competition continues to serve as a cornerstone for the development of women’s cricket in the United States, offering a vital platform for identifying emerging talent and nurturing ambition.

As a pivotal fixture on the USA Women’s Cricket calendar, this tournament is poised to unearth upcoming talent as teams battle for spots in the national championships. In addition to the senior and under 19 national championships, for the very first time, USA Cricket will host an under 15 national girls championship this year.

Celeste du Toit, USA Cricket Women’s Coordinator said, “This year provides an opportunity for young players to showcase their skills as we gear up for another under 19 World Cup in January 2025. With an under 15 national championship now on the domestic pathway, more girls have more to play for as we build out the pipeline and grow the pool of prospective national players.”
