North West Youth Cricket

North West Youth Cricket Our club is a hub for developing players. We provide cricket pathways for High School age players through our North West Youth Cricket programme with playing and coaching opportunities for those in Years 9 to 13.


NWYC is for players of Year 9 to Year 13 age. Players are mainly from the two partner schools, Burnside High School & Papanui High School – However there is no restriction on just these schools.

Registrations open in December for the following school year.  You can find out more information on a dedicated website for

One of the aims of NWYC is to provide a pathway for young cricketers between their junior cricket and their joining Burnside or Merivale-Papanui clubs after leaving school. Burnside High and Papanui High players represent their schools in mid-week teams.

All NWYC players have access to qualified coaches and a Saturday manager (who is mainly a Parent) to aid their development as cricketers. Canterbury Cricket liaises closely with NWYC to ensure that development opportunities are also available for players through its coaching staff and via Christchurch and Canterbury representative teams.
