Youth cricket team to visit Toronto City Hall
  
On Friday, Councillor Doug Ford (Ward 2 Etobicoke North) on behalf of Mayor Rob Ford will congratulate the 12 youth selected for the fourth annual Cricket Across the Pond program. Members of the cricket team, known as the CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) Mayor’s Team, were selected from Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods and will soon travel to the United Kingdom to play and learn cricket in Surrey, England.

Date: Friday, June 24
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Committee Room 2, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The Cricket Across the Pond program is a partnership project of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation and CIMA Canada. RBC Royal Bank and Tom's Place are this year's lead financial supporters.

The goals of the Cricket Across the Pond project are to improve access to the game of cricket, introduce the basic rules of the game to beginners, encourage physical activity among young people, build leadership skills among young cricketers, and provide an opportunity for young people to represent Toronto and Canada abroad.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
