According to CCUSA media release, Jamie Harrison will be working very closely with both National and International entities, including reaching out to the International Cricket Council to help promote the CCUSA brand throughout the USA and beyond, and with a special emphasis on youth cricket within the CCUSA portfolio. Jamie brings a wealth of youth-cricket experience, having been at the forefront in creating the Maryland Youth Cricket Association and, subsequently, the United States Youth Cricket Association.
Jamie Harrison almost single-handedly introduced the sport into several schools in the Baltimore Area, and has expanded his efforts to include most of the elementary schools in the greater Maryland area. He has been instrumental in formally introducing the game into some of the schools around the country by donation free plastic cricket sets to get the children interested in the game. Jamie’s affinity for the promotion of the game has propelled him to the forefront as the first and only president, to date, of the United States Youth Cricket Association, a position which he plans to vacate at the end of his term in March.
When asked about his new assignment, Harrison said” I am excited to be associated with an organization that has the resources to invest in American cricket development, and that is assembling a professional team for that purpose. Everything is changing for cricket in America, and I think this is the threshold of a new beginning.”
