Silver Jubilee Anniversary 1990 – 2015
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club as part of its Silver Jubilee Anniversary Celebrations would be hosting two major programmes next month as part of its ongoing effort to make sure that every youth fulfills his/her full potential on the cricket field and in the classroom. The club’s annual Republic Bank Educational Summer Camp would be held from Monday 6th July, while the annual TCL Cricket Academy would also start on the same day.
Both programmes would be held at the Area ‘H’ Ground in Rose Hall Town and according to RHTYSC Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster, the club has already started to make arrangements to make sure that they are not only successful but fulfill every objective. The Cricket Academy would cater for a total of 100 youths between the ages of 8 to 18 years and would be conducted by cricket coach Delbert Hicks and several others.
The main aims of the Cricket Academy, which would be held for two weeks, are to identify and nurture promising talent for the future, to get them to understand their role as a sports ambassador and to promote the “Say Yes to Education and No to Drugs” message. The young cricketers would be involved in intense coaching to improve their batting and bowling, fielding and physical fitness while a lot of classroom work would also be done on a variety of topics including the History of the Club, Structure of Cricket in the Caribbean, Captaincy, Fielding Positions, Rules of Cricket, Importance of Education, Suicide and HIV/AIDS.
Youths interested in being part of the Cricket Academy can contact the club on telephone number 337–4562 to register.
The Educational Summer Camp would be conducted by Senior Port Mourant Secondary School Teacher, Rohan Etwaru and its main objective is to prepare the 60 students to make a successful transition from Primary to Secondary school when the new school year begins in September. The students would be taught Maths, English, Integrated Science, Basic Spanish and Social Studies during the five weeks camp, while they would also be exposed to coaching to learn how to play cricket, volleyball and basketball. They would also be lectured on a wide range of topics including peer pressure, public manners, choosing friends and drugs abuse.
Students from Rose Hall Town, Tain, Belvedere, Port Mourant and Albion primary would be given priority at the camp but Foster stated that students from other schools would also be considered once space is available. Entrance to both programmes is free of cost.
