Outreach sparks interest

Maciu Malo

KEEN interest in cricket has been shown by some youths in Namara, Ra.

This is after a week-long cricket development and outreach program organised by the Fiji Sports Commission was held at Namara Village last week.

Cricket Fiji development officers Manase Ravula and Iniasi Cakacaka were instrumental in promoting the sport to the rural youths.

The program targets young people, offering them sporting opportunities they may not have been able to access previously through free coaching clinics, while also providing the participating sporting organisations with an opportunity to see the talents outside of their known talent pools.

The outreach program, an initiative of the FNSC, aims to bring sports, particularly less-known ones, to the more remote corners of Fiji.

Ra youth committee member Waisea Lagilevu said the people of Ra had little knowledge about cricket.

He said the outreach program had enabled participants to know more about the sport.

"The training and outreach made by the commission has inspired some of our youths to take up the sport," said Lagilevu.
