Fishers, IN (PressExposure) April 02, 2012 -- The Cricket Spot, [http://www.thecricketspot.com], has recently decided to partner with the Indiana Youth Cricket Association. The partnership will begin Spring 2012 and continue for at least the next year. This partnership will mainly focus on reaching all Physical Education teachers and coaches in the state of Indiana.
The Indiana Youth Crickets mission is to Promote Cricket and expand Youth cricket with Educational Instructions & Training to Indiana schools and to promote fitness and advance the sport of cricket across Indiana. With these goals in mind we will hopefully bring the game of cricket to youth all across the state. Currently, the Indiana Youth Cricket Association has brought cricket to eleven schools in Indiana with another nineteen interested in learning more about the sport. This could be huge for all of Youth Cricket.
In May 2012, we will participate in a health fair in Hamilton County. This fair is focused on youth nutrition and exercise/sports. Our goal is to reach out to the kids at this event and introduce them to the sport of cricket. We also plan to have a training this summer for all 60,000 PE teachers in the state to learn more about cricket as well.
March 24 was national Youth Cricket Day, a day in which we all United States Youth Cricket can celebrate one day of the sport universally. In other United States Youth Cricket news, Reebok Cricket recently signed a deal to become the official cricket apparel sponsor for at least three years. This is the first ever of a sponsorship of this magnitude and could mean great things for Youth Cricket here in America. Currently, most Cricket players in the US are immigrants from Australia, England, India, South Africa and the Caribbean and hopefully this large effort to increase youth cricket can help make it an American born sport.
The sport was introduced to schools in 2010, on the east coast, and since there have been over 1000 schools to introduce cricket to their school, we find this growth to be impressive. There currently is a program for schools to receive a free cricket set if interested. And The USCYA along with the INYCA will both provide free training and instruction to all interested parties.
In conclusion, we are very excited about this new partnership. We are sure that this new growth will ensure that the United States will follow in the rest of the worlds passion for the sport of Cricket!
