REC Primary School and Kelly`s Rural Vocational Agricultural Secondary School in Hastings are the latest schools to benefit from the Sierra Leone Cricket Association’s (SLCA) Growth Road Map 2021 and beyond through a coaching clinic. The clinic is being conducted by SLCA Development Officer, Alie John Kamara.
The children took part in numerous skills and drills before rounding up with a series of fun mini-games. Each school received beginners’ cricket equipment afterwards in order to ensure that the game is continued in the schools.
Alie John Kamara, SLCA Development Officer, said: “The boys and girls had a great time and hopefully they will all continue playing cricket in the future.”
Francis Trevor Samura, Chief Executive Officer of the SLCA added: “The SLCA is committed to continue supporting schools with equipment and to teach cricket skills to the young children to upgrade their game at all levels.”
A number of schools in the Western Area Rural District of Sierra Leone have already received support through the SLCA’s Development Officer Alie John Kamara, by which the game has been introduced to their children, and the SLCA is delighted with the positive response they have received from this.
Conteh, Chairman of Games and Sports at the REC Primary School, Hastings, said: “We want to register our thanks and appreciation to Alie John Kamara and the SLCA for donating cricket equipment and introducing the game to our school, may God continue to bless them for such a gesture.”
