In an effort to hone the skills of the younger players, the Everest Cricket Club has embarked on hosting a five-day camp which commenced on Wednesday afternoon last with 32 players between the ages of 12 to 19.
Club President Manzoor Nadir explained they have invested over $600,000 into the camp which has grown from 22 students last year. Nadir said that discipline will be of utmost importance and even those who do not go on to play at the highest level, the dispersion of knowledge will be most valuable, and the future of the club will be in good hands.
Club Captain Reyaz Hussain stated that the camp allows a union of cultures, adding that one of the campers is from Pakistan. He said that the activities which range from fitness to technical work to etiquette will groom them to become well rounded individuals.
Georgetown Cricket Association President Roger Harper and Director of Sport Christopher Jones explained how sport helps develop social skills and helps restrain issues in regards to Public Health.
Harper said, “This is where the future of West Indies cricket is bred and players must strive for discipline if they want to be successful since skill alone does not make one a complete cricketer.”
The participants are being housed at the club throughout the camp which culminates on Sunday with a fun-day where parents, other club members and campers will compete in matches.
The executive committee of the club has extended gratitude to the sponsors; Shell Service Station, Cluckers, New GPC Inc., Comfort Sleep, MS Imports, Bakewell, Toucan Distributors, Clear Waters, Burger King/Pizza Hut, Movie Towne, Carib Foods, Dembake, Metro Office and School Supplies, Bistro, Avi Designs and Construction, Beacon Café, Major Bhageshwar Murli, Robin Bhart, Ravin Balkarran, Dr. Narine Singh and Dr. Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
