Over Labor Day weekend, Bay Area children of varying ages got to enjoy a trio of socially distanced cricket camps organized by Willow Cricket Academy.
The three locations for the camps were Rancho Milpitas Middle School (for players under 16), Union City’s Delaine Eastin Elementary School (under 14), and Dublin’s Nielsen Elementary School (under 12).
Mask-wearing was enforced while congregating in larger groups was not allowed. In addition, participants’ temperatures were taken.
Willow Cricket Academy’s Prem Suri had this to say: “This has been a very gratifying experience. Parents and students took our safety precautions very seriously, and our social distancing precautions were complied with across the board at all locations. As cricket is not a contact sport, social distance efforts were easily maintained while playing.”
Fremont mayoral candidate and Chairman of Asian American Millennials for American Advancement (AAMAA) Justin Sha was also on hand, and shared these thoughts: “I love cricket. As Chair of AAMAA, I look forward to working with our stakeholders to ensure equitable opportunities for our next generation to learn about cricket and to play cricket.”
Sha has been endorsed for his mayoral bid by the Bay Area Cricket Alliance.
