Cricket Kenya, in its efforts to develop Junior Ladies cricketers in the country, is proud to announce that it will be conducting three holiday camps for Girls aged 13-19 years in three centers in the country.
For the first time the camps will be held in Mombasa and Nakuru alongside Nairobi which held a similar camp last year. The camps will run from April 14-May 5 2012. Participants will be drawn from both Primary and Secondary Schools across the country and will be conducted by Cricket Kenya qualified coaches.
Apart from Nairobi and Mombasa camps that will see the young players being introduced to hard ball cricket, the Nakuru camp will involve players who have played in the junior sides and it will be used to prepare them for the forthcoming regional events and the National Ladies League.
The Nakuru camp will be held at the Greensteads International School and will be conducted by former national team player Peter Ongondo, seasoned youth coach David Asiji and Joseph Somba.
The two camps in Nairobi and Mombasa will be held at Ruaraka Sports Club and Burhani and will be conducted by Dun Okinyo and Joseph Owino respectively.
Last year similar camps were held in Nairobi where 25 girls attended and the results bore immediate fruits with the Kenya U19 girl’s team which comprised of both primary and secondary school girls finishing second in the Africa Junior Girls Championships in Tanzania.
