National Cricket Coach Garvin Nedd, yesterday said this year’s Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) summer cricket camp will be used to churn out more future national cricketers.
The camp, which began on Monday, features players from the respective Under-13, Under-15 and Under-19 levels participating in various aspects of cricket, self esteem and etiquette and teamwork.
The clinic is scheduled for two weeks and Nedd stated that he will be seeking to focus on the technical aspects of cricket for the first week, while turning attention to the social aspect in the second week.
He noted that etiquette was an important aspect of cricket because players should know how to conduct themselves on and off the field.
Since its debut some five years ago, the summer camp for cricketers produced a number of players who have gone on to represent Guyana at the national level.
Players such as recent Under-17 player and skipper Travis Persaud, current Under-19 player Dexter George, Ronaldo Renee and Keanu Harry have come through the camps and have developed into good ambassadors of the country.
Nedd also noted that some past stalwarts of the game are expected to grace the camp and speak to the youngsters from time to time.
The clinic begins at 9: 00am when the Under-13s practice, followed by 1:00pm to 3:00pm of practice for the Under-15s and 3:00pm to 5:30pm for the Under-19s.
