Strategic alignment with schools, NCU, Titans and Cricket South Africa (CSA)
The alignment of skills and facilities with our feeder schools and the Titans are an important initiative to identify and develop talented players. Villagers are one of the first clubs which were awarded with CSA approved accommodation on the premises of the club to create support structures for talented players. These alignments create opportunities for players and makes Villagers one of the key feeder clubs for the Titans provincial teams.
