SINGAPORE REACHES OUT TO A YORKER

The SCA Academy pictured here in operation at the Kallang are adding the Yorker Cricket Ground to their work sites

The Singapore Cricket Association Academy which currently runs programs throughout the week at the Kallang in the east of the city state now has another operations venue on the other side of the island, at the Yorker Cricket Ground. SCA National Development Officer Shoib Razzak says, "our main objective was to apply our resources. Parents had been telling us that bringing their boys to Kallang from so far away was difficult, so doubling up our activity on weekends at Yorker allow us to serve the community and develop the schools in the west."

The SCA Academy offers various training programs designed for different age groups including specialized clinics for batting, bowling and fielding. The academy structure also identifies talent and feeds the National age group teams creating development squads which will lead players to future national squads. Around 5000 guided learning hours are provided every year at the Academy and at schools across Singapore by Shoib Razzak and his Association colleagues.
