The BCB camps unite players from clubs across the island, allowing them to build strong relationships during training and by playing together from an early age. The programmes break down barriers from a territorial perspective, making it less likely for players to develop relationships in gangs in their local areas and participate in antisocial behavior.
Through cricket the BCB programmes keep young boys and girls active and involved in a sport that they love and on the right path to a successful future. Sport positively influences all aspects of our community and provides individuals with health benefits, self-confidence, leadership and lifestyle skills. We are confident that cricket unites communities and individuals together across divisions of race, culture and gender.
The Bermuda Cricket Board announced that Chubb has agreed to continue its sponsorship of the BCB’s 2020 Easter “Action Cricket Camp” that is taking place over five days from March 30 to April 3.
The aim of the Easter Camp is to enhance player’s cricket and social skills in a safe, enjoyable and positive environment.
Under the operation of BCB 1st Vice President and Youth Development Committee Chairman, Arnold Manders and Camp Director, Kellie Smith, the camp provides positive fitness practices through cricket and high-quality cricket coaching in the areas of skill development and knowledge of the game.
The camp incorporates the spirit of cricket in all activities and focuses on a different life-skill each day, such as respect and teamwork.
Chubb’s sponsorship of the program will allow 30 children access to the camp for a subsidized rate of $120 for the week.
Arnold Manders said: “On behalf of the Bermuda Cricket Board, I would like to sincerely thank Chubb, once again, for sponsoring our Annual Easter Camp. The camp, apart from the cricket skills, will also focus on life skills each day, developing the whole child, thus making this sponsorship even more valuable.”
“The Bermuda Cricket Board camp is an exceptional program focused on supporting youth development,” said Samantha Froud, Chief Administration Officer, Bermuda Operations. “Chubb supports BCB’s commitment to educating our youth about this terrific sport while instilling life-long skills centered on teamwork and tenacity.”
