The Bermuda Cricket Board and Athene Life Re have extended their partnership to encourage youth cricket participation.

The ‘Have A Go’ partnership will be held for children aged five to seven at The Berkeley Institute Gymnasium for four weeks, starting next Saturday. The sessions, which are free of charge, will take place at 1pm for girls and 2.15pm for boys.

Natasha Scotland Courcy, the chief executive officer and general counsel at Athene, highlighted the significance of the deal to cricket development on the island.

“Athene is happy to continue our partnership with the BCB to help support their youth programme,’’ Scotland Courcy said.

“The Pee Wee League is important to us as it provides young children with an opportunity to develop skills such as time management, teamwork and goal setting.

“We love what the BCB is doing with this programme and the positive impact it has on the youth of Bermuda.”

BCB vice-president Kellie Smith, who is also chair of the cricket board’s development committee, expressed her appreciation to Athene for their continued support.

“Thank you to Athene for their continuous support of the Bermuda Cricket Board's Pee Wee Cricket Programme,’’ Smith said.

“For years, Pee Wee has been a staple product of the BCB, with entry-level participation aimed at providing children with an enthusiastic first experience in cricket while serving as the opening stage to our Long-Term Athlete Development cricket pathway.”
