GCB and USAGCA collaborate for youth tour in Guyana

As part of its cricket development initiative, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) collaborates with the USA Global Cricket Academy (USAGCA) for a youth friendly competition from March 28 to April 6, 2015.

The USA Global Cricket Academy (USAGCA) was the winner of the 2003 ICC Global Award for Best Junior Development Initiative. The Organization is resuming its international youth cricket tour program following its successful Under-17 and Under-19 Tour of India in 2014-15.

USAGCA Under-18, Under-15 and Under-13 teams will be engaging youth teams from various clubs, counties and area teams of the same age group. The clubs providing teams are Demerara Cricket Club, Everest Cricket Club, Georgetown Cricket Club, and Ghandi Youth Organization. Berbice and Demerara along with the Area Associations in Demerara (West Demerara, Georgetown, East Coast and East Bank) will provide teams for the Under-15 and Under-18 age category. Guyana Under-15 and Under-17 will compete as well. And, Rubix Gas Station in Bel Air will also provide an Under-13 team.

USAGCA aim is to provide their players with a great chance and the best opportunities to play on the best pitches, so as to get international cricket experience. They believe the tour will help their elite players to gain more confidence with vital experience. Many of their players have played National, ICC Americas and International cricket, and this tour will provide the right platform for all players to become professionals and to stay on top for all future cricket events in USA.

By now it is widely known that the GCB has reaped enormous success in 2014 and the beginning of 2015. This achievement has a great lot to do with the Board thorough cricket development program. GCB is always open to ventures that will expose our players to new skills and opportunities that will aid in their long term growth. We are pleased to have the USA youths touring Guyana and we hope they have fun and learn something new that will be beneficial to their cricket.
