A number of the country’s top cricket coaches will assist the country’s young and aspiring players during this year’s Grassroots Cricket Academy summer camp put on by former national and West Indies player, Winston Benjamin.
The camp, which starts on Monday next week, will cater for 40 players and, according to Benjamin, they will have some of the country’s better teachers of the game at their disposal.
“Four coaches are going to be here [at the camp] in Ian Tittle, John Archibald, my son [Jaeo Benjamin], and a new guy who just came on board with us, Dion Samuel. There is going to be a lot of hands-on situation and we are not just going to do cricket, we are going to do some of those little excursions and try to make it as fun as possible,” he said.
Tittle is a former national player who would have coached at the national level while Archibald has also coached at the national youth level.
The youngsters, Benjamin said, stand to benefit from a trip planned for next year.
“We’re planning a trip to England for 2018 and we want to take some under-15 boys and girls because you know how cricket is at the moment — so females are welcomed as well but that I what we are working towards at the moment,” he said.
The former West Indies fast bowler outlined some aspects of the camp.
“On Monday, we are going to be at Rising Sun [East Bus Station playing field] and we are going to be at Dredgers. The younger ones who are five years old, they will be at Dredgers but everyone will meet at Rising Sun and we are going to be there from 9 am until 1:30 pm. I am just saying to the young aspiring cricketers and their parents to just come on up to Rising Sun and get them registered. A registration fee of $10 will be charged,” Benjamin said.
Participants will pay $15 per day, $75 per week, or $250 for all five weeks, which also entitles each participant to a camp shirt.
