Northerns Cricket Hub wraps up Intensive boys 10-Day High Performance camp


Yesterday the Northerns Cricket Hub concluded an intensive 10-day residential camp for boys at St. Joseph’s College Layibi.

The camp, which included participants from Gulu, Lira, and Masindi, aimed to enhance the boys’ cricket skills in preparation for the upcoming school qualifiers next term.

The boys engaged in rigorous drills, focusing on various aspects of the game, including fielding sessions at the High-Performance Boys’ Camp.


The preparation appears thorough as the schools’ cricket week qualifiers approach early in the new term.

In addition to physical training, the camp included classroom sessions to provide the boys with strategic insights on handling different game situations, contributing to their overall development and the continuity of the sport.

A highlight of the camp was a 50-over game, where one side scored 204/8, which was chased by the opposing team, providing practical match experience for the participants.

The 35 boys who attended the camp received cricket kits donated by Bankstown Cricket Club, further supporting their development.

Grace Mutyagaba, the development officer for the Northern region, expressed his satisfaction with the camp’s success.
