With community support we hope to help cricket grow and become a frontline sport in America. MYCA will continue nurturing the talent within its players and creating opportunity for the young children to showcase their talent at higher levels too.
MYCA is working very closely with schools, parks and recreation departments and community groups, to explore new opportunity to introduce cricket to the kids. We want cricket, as a sport, to be embraced by all Americans and want give opportunity to every kid in our region to know and enjoy this wonderful sport.
