The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the city of Colorado Springs play host to USA Cricket youth administrators, from across the country, this weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Presentations concentrating on techniques to increase youth cricket participation across the United States will be led by world renowned sports administration professionals over the two day workshops.
USA Ultimate joins Cricket Australia, the Royal Netherlands Cricket Board Cricket Brasil, and a host of local cricket administrators in sharing ideas of best practice to assist local coaches and administrators broaden youth participation throughout the country.
Cricket Australia’s education courses are acknowledged among the best in the world and National Field Manager, Pat Hassett is eager to be involved:
