CRICKET Fiji is running its Junior High Performance Squad training during the two-week school break.
A total of 21 players meet at Albert Park to work with Cricket Fiji staff and further develop their cricket skills.
Cricket Fiji development manager Joe Rika said the players selected had been identified as top performers at the secondary schools competition this year and from past performances.
"The squad consists of a lot of players who have represented Fiji at national under-age level plus a few who're new to the High Performance standard of training," Rika said.
The players will be put through various fitness and skills sessions before playing the National Women's Team that is preparing for the East Asia Pacific Women's T20 Qualifier in Vanuatu in three warm up matches next week.
"This is the first step in building players capable of competing at the international stage for Fiji in the future.
"These players have the opportunity to build their skills and knowledge of the game and I hope they take full advantage of it," Rika said.
The training sessions will be held at the Albert Park nets and grounds from the May 1 until Friday the May 11, from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
