Junior cricket breeds sucess

Success in sport is variable. Success doesn’t necessarily come only in the form of a team going into an intensive training and winning a premiership. Sports predominantly see success by providing a platform to develop their junior players at an early age.
As such successful sporting codes often have an active junior development programs in place to build up the next lot of champions for the sport in the future. Obviously in sport, junior development program is a map to a success. What you plant today is what you would reap in the future.In PNG not many sporting codes have a good junior development program, many have started it and have failed with few still struggling to get up there.

The program is the breeding ground for future Hebou PNG Barramudis (men) and City Phamacy PNG Lewas (women) which at the same time teaches children the values of team work, respect, leadership, communication, dedication and exercise which are all some very important life skills. For the first time, the PNG Garamuts that competed at the 2018 under-19 Cricket World Cup East Asia Pacific (EAP) qualifier in Samoa all came through the program. This can really help children aged 8-14 to develop their skills that will stay with them for life, also helping them to understand the most important part of the game.
“The program wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Cricket PNG and ITI. We are thankful to the continuous support,” Amini said.
