Recently, Geoff Roberts of the Charlotte International Cricket Club delivered an American Cricket Champ set and instruction to Salisbury Academy in Salisbury, North Carolina. USYCA has received this message from the school:
On behalf of Salisbury Academy, I wanted to thank you and the USYCA for the donation of the cricket set.
My students, in all grades (1st-8th), have already put the set to good use these last two weeks. The kids have shown a tremendous amount of excitement for the game, and I hope that it continues amongst youth their age. I am excited that cricket will forever be a part of my physical education curriculum at Salisbury Academy because I think it is very beneficial for our students. Thanks to the USYCA and yourself, our kids were able to learn a new game that they otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity to learn.
I have attached a few pictures from our cricket class, and I will be sending additional attachments in future emails with more photos. We were very grateful to have Geoff Roberts visit our school and teach our class. He did a fantastic job and the kids absolutely loved him. His passion for the game came out in his teaching of cricket, and the kids really picked up on that. I think that is why they really enjoyed the game, so I wanted to give you feedback on how well he did. The kids are already hoping he will come back next year to teach them some more about the game.
Again, we are extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn about cricket and thankful for your program. Thank you again for the cricket set, and for your dedication to teaching students the cricket.

Congratulations to Geoff Roberts and the CICC for their great work at Salisbury Academy.
