First Americas Women's Academy Camp a huge success
Eleven women from three countries - Argentina, Bermuda and Canada - were joined by four players invited from Trinidad and Tobago at the first ever women's camp in the Americas.
Regional Development Manager, Martin Vieira, visited the camp in Trinidad and commented, "I am delighted when a project is planned, implemented and progressed as successfully as this. All involved, officials of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board at the complex, coaches and managers, and the players, have agreed it was a huge success."
The last ten days provided the selected group of top prospects from their countries to not only improve their playing skills but gain valuable experience in many areas required in today's modern game.
The coaching staff consisted of three former international women players of the West Indies - Ann Browne-John, Stephanie Power and Jasmine Sammy. Cinda Bobb (St.Vincent and Bermuda) was manager of the team.
In addition to daily drills and educational sessions in several areas, the group played as an Americas X1 in three games versus local competition. The management and coaching staff were amazed at how quickly the girls gelled as a team and the vast improvement in their skills over the ten day period
