The stand-out performers in the inaugural St Georges’ Under-13 training camp, which formally ended last Saturday at the West St George Secondary School, were rewarded with trophies.

Students from Belmont Government, Dorsetshire Hill Government and Sion Hill Government, were bussed to the venue on those days.
Additionally, snacks were provided to the students on the days assigned for the training.
During the camp, the participants were exposed to the basics in batting, bowling, fielding and wicketkeeping, as well nutrition, rehydration, and other life skills.
The training camp had as its co-ordinator Samuel Holder.
The coaching team was headed by Ian Allen, who was assisted by Samantha Lynch, Cordell Jack and Kenroy Martin.
