The Area “H” Ground will be a hive of activity from Monday as the 16th edition of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC)/TCL cricket academy bowls off along with the seventh edition of the RHTY&SC’s Republic Bank summer camp for Grade Six students.

The cricket academy, which is being sponsored by Trinidad Cements Limited (TCL), will cater for 80 young cricketers, while the summer camp will cater for 50 Grade Six students preparing for entrance into secondary schools in September.

The academy, slated for July 14-25, will be conducted by coaches Winston Smith and Delbert Hicks. Sessions will start at 08:45h and conclude at 13:00h, with the club providing snacks and refreshments to every member of the academy.

According to a release from the RHTY&SC, special emphasis will be placed on improving the batting, bowling and fielding skills of the members of the academy. Over the years the academy has produced over 30 national cricketers for Guyana and 50 for Berbice at all levels.

The summer camp, with sponsorship from Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited, will be conducted by University of Guyana graduate, Rohan Etwaru. The main aims of the summer camp are to make sure that the students make a successful transition from primary to secondary school and to expose them to basic coaching in cricket, volleyball and basketball.

Club Secretary Hilbert Foster is urging all those interested in attending either of the programmes to be present at the Area “H” Ground by 08:30h on Monday or call 337-4562 for more information.
