- Introduction of State Challenge competitions from U/13 to U/19
- Expansion of the Academy program to include more players and more coaches
- Introduction of the Overage Academy to support the next generation of State and BBL cricketers

The partnership will result in significantly increased opportunities for the best players and significantly increased investment in the NSW Talent Pathway by Cricket Australia and Cricket NSW.
