It’s that time again – The Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) will be hosting its Annual School Vacation Cricket Camp from August 8- 26 at the Club’s ground and pavilion on Lance Gibbs Street, Queenstown, Georgetown.
The daily activities will commence at 09:00hrs and conclude at 15:00hrs. The camp is open to any youngster between the ages of 10 and 16 years who have an interest in cricket and are looking to improve their skills and knowledge of the game.
The camp will run from Monday to Friday for just over two weeks, and will include classroom type instructions/lectures and on field fitness and cricket exercises. Registration and attendance attracts a small cost while snacks and beverages will be provided free of cost.
The Club also bids farewell to Sachin Singh, Qumar Torrington and Ashmead Nedd, as they leave for England to participate in the Under-16 West Indies Tour. These youngsters are products of the Club’s Annual Camp that has been a part of their calendar of events for the past six years.
DCC President, Alfred Mentore has extended best wishes to the players as they embark on their international tour, and pointed out that the success of these players is testimony to the importance, need and benefits of the Annual Summer Camp.
Mentore further stated that the players have continued the high standards set by its predecessors and the rich legacy of DCC in continuing to produce talented players for Guyana and the West Indies.
“I take this opportunity to encourage the corporate community to join in sponsoring the Camp as the club seeks to identify new talent and ensure the longevity and continuity of this great sport that we all love,” said the former national youth cricketer.
The Camps serves multiple purposes for youths, families and the community and is a great social cohesive opportunity to keep children occupied, away from social ills and an ideal get away during the school holidays to help prevent them getting involved in delinquent activities.
