Defending champions Whim
Anglican was knocked out of the
2013 Atlantic Primary Schools crick-
et tournament on Tuesday, when
Clarke Rochard got the better of
them by four wickets at Wilson Road
Recreation Ground in Penal.
Whim arrived late for the game
from Tobago and it was reduced to
a 15-over affair. Jereed Louis promised
a lot with the bat in getting to 17 but
he did not get the support he needed
from his team-mates and Whim
closed their innings at 69 for five off
When Clarke Rochard batted they
found Louis difficult to handle as he
grabbed two wickets for 15 runs but
somehow they were able to get the
target off the final delivery, leaving

Highly-respected Cricket Australia
(CA) certified coach Darren Holder
says that LNG producer Atlantic, title
sponsor of the National Primary
Schools Cricket League, is doing a
wonderful job in "professionalising"
the sport of cricket at the primary
Holder is currently in Trinidad and
Tobago for a four-week stint as part of
the Atlantic Coaching Excellence (ACE)
Programme, a formal coaching-certi-
fication initiative for primary-school
coaches which was launched by Atlantic
For the cricket component of the
programme, teachers in all eight edu-
cational districts will receive formal
training in cricket coaching, conducted
by Holder in two-day sessions. These
sessions will certify the teachers to the
Level 1 international coaching standard.
Holder, who is a former coaching
manager of the West Indies Cricket
Board and currently the director of
cricket at Brisbane Grammar School in
Australia, explained that children
become better cricketers when they
receive proper coaching in the formative
years of their sporting careers.
"It is very important that children
get the proper coaching from an early
age because they develop into better
cricketers," Holder said. "This is an
established fact, and programmes which
target children and which also target
those who must teach children are very
"I am here to work with the pri-
mary-school teachers who are working
with the youngsters in the Atlantic Pri-
mary School Cricket League.
"Atlantic is professionalising the sport
at the primary-school level by bringing
the coaching standard up to level one.
All the coaches that are taking part in
this course will be making a bid to get
level one certification and this they can
use to further their careers as coach-
es."Explaining that the programme is
offered in conjunction with Cricket
Australia (CA), Holder said that CA
had given the programme their blessings
and had made their training materials
"After this course, the teachers will
be able to access CA s coaching manual
and other information online and devel-
op their skill as coaches.
"I am very impressed with the
knowledge base that these guys have.
It makes it easier to work with them.
"However, what I have noticed is
that there is a problem in preparation
and this has been the case ever since
I worked with the West Indies Cricket
Board some years ago. I am going to
work with them to better their prepa-
ration skills, so that they are well pre-
pared for coaching sessions and this
will lead to them being better prepared
for matches as well.
"Being well prepared is a very good
attribute and it is something that has
been lacking across here, when it comes
to the coaches."
Meanwhile, West Indies Women s
captain and Atlantic Sport Ambassador
Merissa Aguillera showed up to lend
her support at one of Holder s sessions
on June 3, at the St Mary s Government
School in Moruga. Aguillera, who hails
from Morgua, told the ACE participants
that they should grasp the opportunity
for certification with both hands.
"I am so very happy today, to see so
many women, taking their rightful place
as coaches and looking to better them-
selves," Aguilleira said. "Atlantic has
afforded you that fantastic opportunity
to develop yourselves and I am hoping
to see a number of you as coaches and
assisting us with women s cricket as
"We need to take our cricket to the
next level and all this is part of that
and you being here shows that you also
want better for the youngsters."
The programme aims to have certified
football and cricket coaches in every
primary school across Trinidad and
Tobago, in support of the long-term
development of the National Primary
Schools Cricket League, the National
Primary Schools Football League and
the National Primary Schools Track
and Field Championships, all sponsored
In the first instance, the three-year
programme will target coaches in cricket
and football. For cricket, certification
sessions have already been conducted
for Port-of-Spain, Caroni and South.
The session for the North-East district
got underway on Monday.
