Digicel on Tuesday announced a partnership with the biggest party in sport – the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) – to launch the inaugural Digicel CPL Youth Programme, which will see over 200 young aspiring cricketers across the region being trained by their local CPL franchise players and coaches.
The two-phased initiative, which consists of The Big Brother Programme and Take it to the Streets, allows both Digicel and the CPL to give back to and nurture up and coming young talents from across the participating CPL tournament markets, including Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago.
Each one-day clinic will consist of boys and girls who will be taught the fundamentals of the game in order to improve and hone their skills while learning from the best in the sport. Not only will they be sharpening their cricketing skills, but will also instill the intangible requirements it takes to be great in the sport.
The Big Brother programme kicked off in Barbados on Tuesday, while the Take it to the Streets/Take it to the Beach phase gets underway in August.
