The Under 14 Challenge Series is the stepping stone up from club cricket for Under 13 and Under 14 age-group players.  The competition was added to the regional cricket pathway in the west of Scotland at the start of the 2015 season, and replaced the previous Under 14 Inter-Area Tournament.

The Challenge Series sees three centrally-selected squads – Eagles, Foxes and Sharks – compete against each other throughout the season.  The six games see teams playing each other twice, the fixtures normally taking place on Sundays.  The Challenge Series provides an opportunity for talented players from across the west region to come together and compete against their peers, whilst additionally acting as a component part of the player identification and assessment process by which players are invited to join the Regional Development Centre (West) winter training squad.
