Emerging Player Programme
The Emerging Player Programme (EPP) is a one to one elite coaching programme for the most talented cricketers in Wiltshire between the ages of 13 and 16. The programme is headed up by the Wiltshire Head of Performance, Alan Crouch and is essentially a 12 month programme of one to one coaching.
The aim of the programme is to prepare players to go on to First Class academies at the age of 16 through a regular programme of intense, quality coaching and a closely managed match play programme. On an annual basis only a handful of players will be invited to be on the EPP as it is a big commitment for both player and coach and is pitched at a very elite level.
Since the EPP began in 2007 Wiltshire has enjoyed great success in terms of the numbers of players who have left the programme to join First Class academies and so a key role of the EPP Head Coach has been to facilitate links with First Class counties to ensure that they are aware of Wiltshire's EPP players and to add value to Wiltshire's programme where possible.
