Rookies to benefit from 3rd Annual Camp – 23/02/13
PCA Chief Executive, Angus Porter, said,
"The day is designed to introduce the rookies to as much as we can within
a short time span, in order to equip them to deal with the most important
issues of the modern game – both the many positives of being a professional cricketer,
the pitfalls that lurk around the corners and the responsibility as role models
they have to uphold on behalf of the game, themselves, their counties and the ECB."
Martyn Ryan, Chairman of the TMT, commented, "With the Trust still in its infancy, this represents a perfect opportunity to fulfil our role by covering so much valuable ground with these young aspiring professionals."
By partnering with Diageo, the PCA are also delivering a responsible drinking education session through their DrinkiQ Programme. Rookies will be the first to benefit from the interactive presentation, which will then be rolled out to each county squad over the next 12 months.
Mark Baird, Head of Industry Affairs and Alcohol Policy at Diageo GB,
said, “Diageo has a proud history of promoting responsible drinking. Sportsmen
and women are role models in our society and the PCA’s efforts to ensure
players understand the facts about alcohol should be applauded. The DrinkiQ
initiative benefits professional cricketers in England and Wales.”
