USAGCA’s number one goal is to prepare more professional young cricketers in the USA to represent the country at International events. Since the academy was launched in 1999, it has won the ICC 2003 Global Award for Best Junior Development Initiative.

The Academy is a proud member of several more national Cricket related organizations in USA including USACA. A few of them hold elected positions with administrative or management responsibilities to support cricket in USA.

Over the years USAGCA with the vision “BUILDING GREAT CRICKET PROFESSIONALS” has had a long and distinguished association with the USA junior cricket teams, like the U13 team to Barbados in 2003, Four Under-18 teams to Trinidad, U-15 and U-19 teams to Wales, Four U-19 teams to the Sir Garfield Sobers Tournament in Barbados, and the U-18 team tour to India and Sri Lanka during 2006.

After USAGCA resumed their youth cricket International tours with the 2014-15 Grand Tour of India for U-17 and U-19 teams, and the recently concluded U-13 U-15 U-18 teams Guyana Tour, the Academy is planning for more International tours and a National Membership program.
