Mohomed Azeez' son Aaqib attends Maybeury Elementary School in Richmond, Virginia, and is passionate about cricket. At Aaqib's insistence, and with the approval of his teacher, Mohomed took a USYCA American Cricket Champ set to recess at Maybeury to see how receptive the children would be to cricket. The response was overwhelming, and the kids had a wonderful time playing.
Mohomed has also spoken to the local YMCA which is considering adding cricket to its sports starting next spring.
On February 22, Maybeury will again be in the spotlight as Henrico County Schools will be hosting a USYCA training program there for a volunteer group of elementary school teachers. The school system then plans on introducing cricket to its secondary school teachers in October.
