Min of Sports/NSC cricket camp opens Monday at Enterprise
The Sports Ministry and National Sports Commission (NSC) have collaborated with National Female Cricket Coach Latchman Yadram to host an under-17 cricket camp at the Enterprise Community Centre from next Monday to Friday July 27.
Yadram said session will run from 08:30hrs to 12 noon each day adding that Director of Sport Neil Kumar is expected to declare the camp open on Monday from 10:00hrs. The camp is open to both boys and girls and snacks will be provided for the participants who will be taught a number of different topics and take part in two cricket matches once the weather is kind to them.
Yadram said he is catering for about 50-60 students mainly from the secondary schools on the East Coast of Demerara where he conducted coaching sessions.
“In 2010 we had 56 registered students while last year no camp was held because I was on National duty with the Guyana female team in Barbados.
Cricket is still very important as a unifying factor and in addition to cricket topics several other topics that aids in the development of young people will be taught during the week long camp,” Yadram disclosed.
The Basics of cricket will be taught by Yadram with assistance from coaches Daniel Richmond and Herman Persaud, while Gervy C. Harry of the NSC will conduct sessions on Leadership and Discipline with Jowhirlall Jilall doing sessions on wicket-keeping and scoring.
In the non-cricket topics, a ministry of Health personnel will teach classes on Food and Nutrition, while HIV/AIDS, Road Safety and table tennis sessions will also be conducted.
