More at­tend Kiddy Cricket CWI con­firms new man­age­ment

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Sport 2 -

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)
