Cricket opportunities for young people
He will be co-hosting a Youth Cricket Exhibition in the East End starting tomorrow and Saturday. Later in the summer, he will be holding a ‘Complete Cricket Camp’ along with National Squad Player Del Hollis.
Mr Crockwell encouraged young people to come out and compete for the title of best batsman, bowler and fielder at Bailey’s Bay Cricket Club tomorrow from 5.30pm until 7.30pm.
There will also be a host of fun activities to help them learn the best techniques to improve their game.
The free event will continue on Saturday with a Men’s 10/10 tournament, starting at 10am at St David’s Cricket Club.
Mr Crockwell said: “Initially we decided to put this event on to raise money for a good cause, but we also wanted to showcase the young cricket players with talent.
“We want people to come down to observe the excitement children have when playing cricket now a days.
“A lot of people aren’t interested in the sport, but there are still children eager to play and those are the ones we hope will come out.”
There will be refreshments, music and an inflatable obstacle course on offer on Saturday.
Mr Crockwell will also be hosting a summer camp for the month of July, where young people can learn basic cricket skills, while also taking part in swimming and other activities.
He said the sport was helpful in teaching young people patience, discipline and how to deal with disappointments when they lose the game.
The camp — held at CedarBridge Academy — is open to girls and boys aged five to 12; the cost is $100 a week.
