The team will be facing USA and Canada in this double round robin 40 over tournament and the players will need to be at the top of their game to bring home the trophy."


Coach Moore continued, "During the camp Dr. Rudy Alleyne will work with the players on their physical fitness focusing on improving their cardio vascular, strength, power, flexibility and core stability.  In addition, the team will spend time with Education Manager, Ashley Da Costa, from the Bermuda Sport Anti-doping Authority who educates athletes on the Prohibited List and the health risks associated with using supplements and banned items. Arlene Andrews, Nutritionist will education the players on how their nutritional choices optimizes their athletic performance and gives them a lifetime of health benefits."


"I will be working in conjunction with U15 Coach Lorenzo Tucker and due to the fact that coach Grant Smith isn't avaible due to work commitments, with the boys to improve their technique and game scenarios, which should develop their ability to read the game and react to pressured situations as they arise. There will be a strong focus on running between the wickets and fielding which to win these tournament is of the highest order."


"In conclusion, I would like to thank The Argo Foundation for their support of the BCB National Academy which services boys and girls from the age of 9 through to the senior level.
