Female youth squads
The South Australian Cricket Association fields female teams in each of the underage championships coordinated by Cricket Australia. The championships are an integral part of the Cricket Australia player pathway program, with a number of current Scorpion cricketers having previously played at underage levels. This list includes Lauren Ebsary, Megan Schutt, Bridget Patterson and Amanda Wellington.
The South Australian Cricket Association this season appointed former South Australian captain Andrea McCauley as SACA’s first full-time head coach of the Breezair SA Scorpions. McCauley will work alongside recently appointed SACA General Manager, High Performance and former Australian coach Tim Nielsen, and will be responsible for leading the Scorpions program for the next two seasons. Nielsen and McCauley will oversee the strategic direction of the female high performance pathway at SACA, to align all female cricket teams and programs.
McCauley boasts an extensive resume that includes six seasons as Scorpions assistant coach, two seasons in charge of the South Australian Under 18 Female side and numerous seasons coaching Grade cricket side West Torrens.
