THE chairman of the Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) member services committee is targeting younger people to help beef up the numbers in the association.
Timothy Boyce, a BCA board member for the past ten years, who will be seeking re-election for another two-year term when the 15th special meeting of members is held next week Thursday, has recommended the establishment of a youth arm of the association.
Conscious of an aging demographic in the membership, over the last year Boyce and his committee embarked on a drive to recruit new members. It has resulted in an increase of more than 55 members, including young persons, some of whom are members of the Barbados team.
In his report to members which will be presented at the BCA’s annual general meeting tomorrow, Boyce said the committee had engaged in an outreach programme to the parents of the young cricketers enrolled at the Everton Weekes Centre of Excellence. (HG)
