The Tustin Youth Cricket was created with the support of the City of Tustin and the Tustin Parks and Recreation Department. The Tustin Youth Cricket Team marched in the Tiller Days Fair parade on Saturday morning, and throughout the weekend they managed a booth at the Fair grounds. The booth was provided by the Parks and Recreation Department and allowed interested visitors to the fair to stop and speak directly to the cricket coaches. The booth also provided visitors the opportunity to register for fall classes in cricket for both children and teenagers. Classes began on Oct 4 and will continue till Dec 2.
Both boys and girls teams are planned. Call Parks and Recreation (714) 573-3326 for further details.
Cricket has just made its debut in the US. The City of Tustin has availed of the historic opportunity to provide services and facilities to the Tustin Youth Cricket Team to encourage local participation and inform the residents of the history of this worldwide sport.
