More attend Kiddy Cricket CWI confirms new management
WITH a record 135 aspiring cricketers participating in this year’s Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket summer camps, the programme has been hailed a success.
For the fourth year running, the bank partnered with Cricket West Indies (CWI) to host camps across the island.
The young cricketers participated in camps at the Passage Road, St Michael and Speightstown, St Peter playing fields and the YMPC grounds from August 14 to 17.
CWI territorial development officer Robin Parris said: “The campers enjoyed the week and the programmes that were offered to them, and just being part of the Kiddy Cricket camp. With the recent exceptional performance of Barbadians Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite, two former Kiddy Cricketers themselves, it gives us greater impetus to move forward with the programme.”
Scotiabank’s personal banking officer Ryan Bascombe also spoke to the campers about managing their finances, in keeping with the Kiddy Cricket programme’s focus on not only fostering interest in the sport but helping children develop interpersonal skills, self-confidence, and self-discipline. (PR) head coach and an interim management team will be in place for the short term,” the release stated.
It added: “CWI wishes to thank the previous management team for their time and contribution.”
Physiotherapist Oba Gulston has been replaced by Ariane Mangar while fitness coordinator Hector Martinez-charles has been replaced by Shayne Cooper. Gary Belle will take over from Trent Sargeant as data analyst.
CWI said an 18-member squad will be selected shortly for a camp, set to run from September 25 to October 4, from which the side to face Sri Lanka will be chosen. (CMC)
