Omaha Cricket Club Is Latest USYCA Member

February 16, 2011

 

Omaha Cricket Club has become the newest member of USYCA. OCC has been in existence since 1991, and has five cricket ball teams and 11 tennis ball/softball teams within the club. Winners of the Midwest/Kansas City League in 2003 and 2007, the club's home grounds are in historic N. P. Dodge Park and Levi Carter Park. The Omaha Cricket Club is dedicated to spreading the game to children in schools and in the community, and has conducted several cricket clinics in Omaha area for several years.

"For a true cricketer, it is very important to feed cricket to younger, next generations to keep the sport alive, rather than just play, watch and enjoy the game by themselves," Bhaskar Krishna, President of the Omaha Cricket Club said. "The tradition of cricket should flow in to the community and the kids stream to make cricket an integral part of their life. The joy of cricket is enormous when you teach a kid, even more than scoring a century or making a hattrick. I think USYCA has a strong plan and resources to do that and we are happy to be affiliated with them."

"Omaha Cricket Club has done a great job over the past few years in helping to grow youth cricket in Nebraska, and USYCA is very happy that they are joining our team," USYCA President Jamie Harrison said. "This is a forward-thinking group of cricketers who can see the value in investing in young people. They are working to make things happen in Omaha and Lincoln, and we're looking forward to working with them."
