Media Advisory: Mayor to host send-off breakfast for youth cricket team heading to United Kingdom
On August 11, Mayor David Miller will congratulate the 14 youth selected for the fifth annual Cricket Across the Pond program. Members of the cricket team, known as the CIMA Toronto Mayor’s Team XI, were selected from Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods and will soon travel to the United Kingdom to play cricket against their European British counterparts.

Date: Tuesday, August 11
Time: 8:30 a.m.

The Cricket Across the Pond program is sponsored by Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, CIMA Canada, the Royal Bank of Canada and Bell Canada. (“CIMA” stands for Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.)

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, improve physical activity among youngsters, build leadership skills among young cricketers and provide an opportunity for young people to represent Toronto and Canada abroad.
