Friday 6th February, 150 young and enthusiastic cricketers had an active and exciting start to their weekend, when they got the opportunity to participate in a cricket clinic hosted by Solstice Foundation together with Sporting Chance at the Avonwood Sports Complex in Elsies River.
The cricket skills of the children varied considerably and all benefited from the specialised coaching received from the Sporting Chance coaching team. The participants were divided into groups to ensure they received individual attention to work on their skills.
The day was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all involved. To end the day the participants received a well deserved cool drink and snack and went home with a lot more knowledge of the game of cricket and additional life skills.
Special thanks to the Solstice Foundation for making these clinics possible and for assisting us to develop the young cricketers in this disadvantaged community.
