Cricket West Indies (CWI) today announced the match schedule for the West Indies Rising Stars Under 15s Championship which will be played in Antigua from Tuesday 4 April to Wednesday 12 April.

The tournament will feature the six regional teams who will each play five rounds of 50-over matches at three venues: Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Coolidge Cricket Ground, as well as the Liberta Sports Club.

The opening round will see home team Leeward Islands taking on Windward Islands at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium; Trinidad & Tobago will meet Guyana at Coolidge Cricket Ground and Jamaica face defending champions Barbados at Liberta. All matches start at 9:30am local time (8:30am Jamaica).

Jimmy Adams, CWI’s Director of Cricket spoke of the importance of age group tournaments across the region and how essential it is to develop the young talent in the West Indies.

“I want to congratulate the players who have earned selection to play in the upcoming West Indies Rising Stars Under 15s Championship and who will have the honor of representing their regional teams. This is a step in their development, and we want to wish them the very best,” Adams said.

“Last year we saw the restart of this tournament, after a break due to COVID 19, and we were able to see a number of excellent performances, and we anticipate more of the same this year. This is a critical step in pathway from the grassroot stage and we want to continue to ensure we provide those opportunities for the players to grow and flourish.”

The Rising Stars Under 15s Championship will signal the first age-group tournament for junior male cricketers this year. Later in the summer, CWI will stage the West Indies Rising Stars Under 17s Championship in Trinidad which will feature 50 over matches and the West Indies Rising Stars Under 19s Championship in St Vincent which will be three-day matches and 50 over matches.

Jamaica’s Under-15 reggae Girlz suffered a 0-5 defeat at the hands of Canada to kick off their CONCACAF U-15 Girls Championship at the Hillsborough County Sportsplex Field 2 in Florida.

Nikolina Istocki got a double while Keira Martin, Annabelle Chukwu and Taegan Stewart got the goals for the Canadians.

In the other Group B match on the day, defending champions the USA hammered Puerto Rico 12-0.

Jamaica’s next game will be against the dangerous Americans on Tuesday while Canada will take on Puerto Rico.

The final 18-member squad to represent Jamaica at the Concacaf U15 Girls’ Championship, a developmental tournament, has been selected by coach Tashana Vincent and her staff.

The Championship starts on Sunday and ends on August 7 in Tampa, Florida.

There will be 19 Concacaf Member Associations and one invited nation, Wales, at the Hillsborough County Tournament Sportsplex in Tampa, Florida, playing a total of 44 matches among teams split into two leagues.

Two groups will make up League A, with Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Wales slotted in Group A, while the United States, Canada, Jamaica and Puerto Rico will feature in Group B.

Jamaica will play Canada on Monday at 9:00am and then tackle the USA on Tuesday at the same time. They have a day’s rest on Wednesday and then return to face Puerto Rico at 11:00am on Thursday.

The remaining 12 teams will occupy League B, beginning with Bermuda, Belize, Anguilla and Martinique in Group C.

Honduras, Bahamas, US Virgin Islands and Aruba will form Group D, while Nicaragua, Guyana, Turks and Caicos Islands and Cayman Islands will compete in Group E.

A round robin group stage will take place July 31-August 3, followed by a single elimination knockout round. In League A, the group winners and second-place finishers will advance to the semi-finals, while in League B will see the three group winners and the best second place finisher advancing to a semi-final stage.

The teams that do not advance to the knockout round will be slotted into an additional match to determine final placement. The tournament’s format ensures that every team will have a minimum of four matches played.

The reigning champions of the Concacaf U15 Girls’ Championship is the United States, who claimed their second crown in the 2018 Final with a 3-0 win over Mexico.

The Jamaica Football Federation is saddened after receiving news that Jedine Carr's life was taken by the bullet of a gunman on Friday while she travelled to football training.

Jedine was a member of the Jamaica Under-15 team that traveled to China to participate in the Chinese Football Development Exchange Programme in 2018. 

She was called to the Under 17 National Training squad, played Under 15 football for St. Thomas and was a member of the Yallahs High team which participated in the aborted ISSA School Girls Competition in 2020. Her most recent games were played with the Proven Girls Academy in the ISSA Construction 2022 Reinas Cup. 

“I call upon Jamaicans to stand up to this bulging monster called crime and fight against what now seems to be a passive acceptance of it,” said Michael Ricketts, President of the JFF.

“We are losing so many young and industrious people to gun violence.  Jedine did everything right and was making big strides to brighten her future when her life was snuffed out. Profound condolences to her family, friends, teammates and the St Thomas Football Association. Please stay strong in these challenging times,” Ricketts added.
