BCB ‘Around the World’ Summer Clinic Week 1 Update

Cricket in Bermuda & Cup Match!

Week 1 of the BCB ‘Cricket Around the World’ Summer Clinic, supported by Argus, has gone extremely well. This week the players learnt about the history of cricket in Bermuda and Cup Match. We were honourd to have several guest speakers including the President of Somerset CC, Mr. Alfred Maybury, the President of St. George’s CC, Mr. Neil Paynter, former Cup Match player, Mr. Clay Smith and some of Bermuda’s current Cup Match players, Mr. Stephen Outerbridge, Mr. Jekon Edness and Mr. Rodney Trott. Players got to wear their cup match colors and brought in photos of their favorite Cup Match players. 


This week players also focused on playing fairly and being respectful. During the character building classroom sessions, players used role play and came up with various scenarios to learn how to play fair and to also respect each other, their teammates and the officials. Once the classroom session was finished they went out to implement what they learnt in a game.


The BCB Summer Clinic has a “Cricket Around the World” theme in which each week the camp focuses on cricket in a different country. Next week players will learn about cricket in India and their character building skill will be trustworthiness.


The main purpose of the summer clinic is to teach the skills of cricket while enriching the lives of all of Bermuda’s children by keeping them active over the summer months playing a sport they love. During the clinic the participants play regular games amongst themselves and against other camps in the area. The camp incorporates skill building activities and weekly excursions to the National Sports Centre pool & John’s Smith Bay for swimming.


The clinic runs June 30 – August 8 from 8.30am to 3pm with optional after-camp supervision from 3pm to 5.30pm at Berkeley Institute Gym and Nets and Western Stars Field for girls and boys age 7 to 14.


Thanks to supporters such as Argus, the BCB camp is offered at a subsidized rate of $100 per week and an additional $50 per week for the after-clinic supervision. Some excursions may incur an additional cost. Please email the BCB for more information on info@cricket.bm.
