The USYCA's "American Cricket Champ" sets have begun to arrive, and
we want to extend an invitation to individuals, clubs and organizations
to join with us in making sure these sets find their way into the hands
of children across the country. USYCA will supply the cricket sets for
free, only asking that the receiver assume the shipping charges for the
sets. As an example, a 30 lb. case of four sets will cost about $20 by
USPS Parcel Post to Chicago.
USYCA is interested in working with groups and individuals that share
our vision for taking cricket into American schools, and will work
closely with organizations and volunteers to identify target schools,
and then to see that those schools get cricket for their PE classes.
USYCA can assist as much as is needed, even contacting target schools
and setting up the delivery day, if the local volunteers don't feel
confident enough at first. The idea is to get cricket started in schools
across America, and then to nurture those schools cricket programs over
that we ask is that a local organization become a USYCA affiliate, and
our local contact in the area. Our annual affiliate fee is $50.
There are many benefits to USYCA affiliation, including access to
reduced-rate youth cricket insurance, very inexpensive background checks
for those in your organization, opportunities for publicity and
receiving other shared resources from USYCA. Something else we do is to
produce articles that appear on our website, which are then promoted by
email, on Facebook and Twitter.
If you or your group would be interested in working with USYCA to
grow youth cricket in America, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
cricket sets were shipped out to the OCCA (CA) on February 7. Just the
first of many going out to youth programs across the USA.
