Inclement weather has caused the Demerara Cricket Club to shift commencement of its Summer Camp from Monday, August 7 to Monday, August 14.
The camp will also now be operated as a collaborative effort between the DCC and the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC).
The camp will be facilitated by established local coaches, namely Mark Harper, Reon King, Garvin Nedd and Orin Bailey, among others, who will be tasked with the following aims of the programme: Teaching and reinforcing the basics of batting, bowling, wicket keeping and fielding; development of skills; building and improving athletic capability; mental skills training; personal and life skills training; Instilling discipline in participants; introduction to goal-setting; tactical awareness; captaincy and leadership skills training; and participation in various matches.
Children will be placed into groups according to age and skill level, and are encouraged to bring their own equipment. However, DCC will have gear for participants to use.
The organisers are also encouraging the youths to bring their water bottles, rags and hats.
The programme aims to attract 60 participants. Registration forms can be picked up at DCC after 16:00h. The fee is $6000, or $2000 per week.
Guidelines for the programme will be available when uplifting the registration form.
