Standard Bank and Cricket South Africa (CSA) understand that a difference in the South Africa’s cricket landscape cannot be made at national team level, if the inequalities of the foundation feeder system are not addressed. It is for this very reason that these two institutions have partnered to launch a powerful initiative that aims to transform this national sport by developing and nurturing the budding cricket potential in SA. The partnership sees Standard Bank sponsoring 12 Regional Performance Centres (RPC) programmes across the country with the ultimate objective of growing the pipeline of future stars.
This RCP programme which focuses on the age groups between 13 and 18-years will – this week from Monday, 02 to Friday, 06 April 2018 – afford about 144 young, talented cricketers from around the country an opportunity to participate in the Standard Bank RPC National U17 Week for 2018. This under-17 tournament will take place in Pretoria in areas that include Hammanskraal, Mamelodi and Tuks.
