Dwarika praises WICB U-15 camp
National Under-15 cricket coach Glen Dwarika recently returned from the third annual West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Sandals Foundation U-15 High Performance Camp in Antigua, and he believes programmes such as these will benefit West Indies cricket in the future. Dwarika, who coached the national U-15 team to the WICB U-15 title from July 12-26 in Jamaica, was happy with what he saw at the seven-day camp from August 21-27. Players and coaches, including 57 young men from the Leeward Islands, Guyana, Antigua and T&T participated in the camp which was broken up into three pillars—technical skills, techniques and strategy and life skills. St Lucia, Jamaica, Barbados and Windward Islands took part in a similar camp in St Lucia.
The players, who battled for the regional U-15 title last month, joined forces, working together during the sessions to improve their knowledge and skills of the game. “All the teams worked together, these players will go on to represent the West Indies in the future,” Dwarika said. He mentioned players got to gel with each other and build chemistry which will benefit West Indies cricket. Former West Indies bowlers Andy Roberts and Rawl Lewis also stopped by to pass on their experience to the youngsters. Dwarika also stated the participants at the camp also did health sessions in areas such as injury prevention and managing injuries.
