Five teams will be vying for the INET Kenny Benjamin U13 trophy on Sunday, February 05 at the world famous Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds.
One new team from Piggots will join Young Masters, All Saints and Bethesda as they aim to beat defending champions Liberta.
For Kenny Benjamin, coach and former West Indies fast bowler the matches are more than about who wins or loses: “After an intense weekend of learning new skills and having sessions with former professional cricketers, the matches will give the youngsters an opportunity to have fun and at the same time put into practice some of the team building exercises they have learnt.”
Benjamin adds that he wants adults as well as other youngsters from each community to come out and support their teams: “Playing at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds is a great honour for any cricketer and for these youngsters what would be better than to be cheered by 100s of fans from their community? When I was growing up youth matches were as well attended as adult matches and I learnt from the adults who supported me, I want the same for our youngsters. ”
The matches will be the penultimate event of the INET Kenny Benjamin Youth Fest 2012 that will see the winning team receive the INET Kenny Benjamin U13s trophy. There will be an EC$10 entry fee for all adults attending the matches on the Sunday.
The inet Kenny Benjamin Youth Fest is organised by Persona Community, a company that combines sport, education and event management
