President of DCC, Alfred Mentore, accepted the donation on behalf of the Club and extended gratitude to Khan, the Amazon Warriors and Mr. Bobby Ramroop for their continued support and commitment to the annual summer Camp. He stress the timeliness of this contribution which will come in very handy in offsetting cost and contributing to the success of this youth camp. The Youth Camp is in it’s first week with programs planned for the other two weeks to include lectures on Umpiring, History of cricket, Public Speaking, Food & Diet along with Fitness and Health. Mentore also encouraged the youngsters to make the best of the Cricket Camp, and emphasized that participating in sports is a good way of learning and encouraging personal discipline and responsible behavior amongst young people. He also emphasize the need for many more such camps which will foster the growth of the game, an important nursery for the young kids and an introduction phase where youths learn the basics and fundamentals of the game. The summer camp is being led by our longstanding coach Garvin Nedd whom has been the most successful youth coach in Guyana, and the evergreen former West Indian player Travis Dowlin whom has always given solid support to the club and its programmes.
