USA Cricket: Youth cricket turns the corner in USACA-Central West Region

USACA Central West Region conducted a Regional Youth Cricket Camp over the President’s day long weekend, February 15th and 16th.  The camp was held in Lewisville (Texas) and was attended by over 60 kids.  Kids traveled from all over Texas and from as far away as Oklahoma to participate in the camp.  

The journey of youth cricket in the Dallas Fort worth area began in 2010 as a community effort driven by volunteer parents promoting cricket to youth through a fun and family-oriented program.  The United Youth Cricket Club was soon established to start a program for aspiring boys and girls from cricketing and non-cricketing backgrounds.  The club is a member of North Texas Cricket Association (NTCA). 

The United Youth/NTCA Program is conducted in partnership with Coach Thiru Kumaran, a former international Cricket Player.  The club has also extended a hand of partnership to Youth Cricket groups in Arkansas and Austin and hopes to create a regional youth league.

Fitness and fielding sessions, match simulations and cricket games for the various age groups were conducted during the regional camp. The event was supported by many volunteer parents who are the core of the leading youth Cricket Program in the region. 

For further information, please contact Praful Mainker, NTCA Youth Coordinator, at Praful.Mainker@gmail.com.
