TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Cricket League (TCL) founded in 2007 is one of the main organizers of Adult and Youth Cricket events in the Tampa Bay area.
In September 2016, TCL kicked off the Youth Program with one single coach and a few students. Since then, the program expanded and as of today, there are 60+ participants enrolled in the program.
During January 2020, Tampa Cricket League hosted the Level 1 and Level 2 coaching certification camp & practical training sessions for its coaches at Commissioner Al Higginbotham Fields in Seffner Florida.
Players of the Tampa Bay Sunrisers Women’s Cricket Club were invited to participate in this camp as it is TCL’s vision to grow Women Cricket in the community.
To keep up with the momentum and prepare for the future demands, we need more trained coaches for adequate coaching and training program, TCL recently hosted weekend-long Training camps for existing & new coaches and youth players with the help of Jatin Patel, Multisports coach, and cricket Hall of Famer in the USA, who pioneered cricket coaching and scholastic programs for the schools.
TCL also joined hands to reach out to Sarasota International Cricket Club (SICC) and invited Legend Dr. Shivnarine Chanderpaul, former West Indies captain.
“Around 60 kids and more parents than kids joined hands to make this weekend a successful event for the sport of cricket in our area which we need to inspire and motivate more youths for sport cricket in our area,” Nitheesh Shetty, President TCL said.
