Courtney Walsh clinics
Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) has renewed its sponsorship for the staging of this year's Courtney Walsh Cricket Clinic.
The success of the clinic in identifying and developing kids under 15 years with cricket talent islandwide has driven SVL to recommit $2.5m to the programme.
The programme will run from August 11-17, with the main objective being to enhance the talent of each player who shows the potential to join Jamaica's Under-15 team and by extension the West Indies junior teams, whilst teaching young players cricketing fundamentals on and off the field.
The coordination and execution of this programme will be led by Walsh, the legendary West Indies fast bowler, and Robert Samuels, former West Indies opening batsman and Jamaica captain.
"This year's partnership gives us an opportunity to emphasise and showcase our loyalty to youth development through sports. The talent pool of young cricketers produced from the programme over the last seven years is commendable and due mainly to the vision and work of Walsh and his team as well as SVL's strong association," said Diahann Guy-Shepherd, sponsorships, promotions and branding manager for SVL.
