Sports are a great way for children to develop- both physically and mentally. Joining a sports team is great for teamwork and relationship building. The children also need to use their brains to learn about the sport and how to develop strategies for game-time situations.
Also, when the children are playing sports they are not getting involved in violence or crime. Without cricket, these children could be getting into trouble by having too much time on their hands. Their coaches become their mentors and positive influences.
Cricket is a game that anyone can enjoy and it can be played both competitively and for recreation. It’s the best of both worlds. Cricket is a good part of Bermuda’s culture and the development program will ensure that cricket will continue to be apart of Bermuda’s culture in the future.
