Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Sunday launched the National Academy for 2015 which will be part of the High Performance Programme.

"This is an exciting development for our emerging men's and women's talent," CSA general manager Corrie van Zyl said in a statement.

"The National Academy will now be part of the High Performance Programme which directs its focus towards enhancing the pipeline of able and prepared young cricketers to feed the Franchises and, ultimately, the National Teams.

"The profile of the SA National Academy as a vital contributor in the development of young cricketers who show the potential to play at the highest level will be substantially raised by re-introducing International competition as part of the development programme of these identified cricketers."

The National Academy would include the second ever intake of women's cricketers in efforts to build capacity and strength of depth for the national Women's team. It will also address the development needs of those players currently playing in the Protea Women's team in order to assist their growth as successful international players.

The programme will run from mid-May until the end of August.
