FIJI Cricket development manager Saiasi Fuli yesterday explained that plans to increase competition are in progrss to help develop ways to maximise youngsters' potential.

In the past two weeks primary schools in Viti Levu have been hosting tournaments in an effort to encourage children to participate in the sport.

"The different zones will continue their competition on a regular basis in order to build up participating schools in their respective zones," Fuli said.

"We have a couple of new zones like Kadavu, Ba, Labasa, Lautoka and Nasinu and the extension will offer more game time for students to master the basics of cricket, build score cards, create more awareness and then hold a national tournament."

Fuli has also promised that despite focusing primarily on primary schools of late, strategies are in progress to proceed this into high schools as well.

"We are focusing on expanding school participation before engaging competitions. The same will apply for secondary schools but transition from soft ball to hard will apply to the under-16s."

The national competition is expected to be held by the mid of term two. Current zones that have been participating in the primary schools competition include Suva, Lautoka and Tailevu.
