Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Indore Divisional Cricket Association (IDCA) is preparing an indoor academy on the Gymkhana ground by further enhancing facilities for the players. The project report was placed in the meeting of the Managing Committee on Wednesday.
IDCA Secretary Debashish Nilose said that it has been decided in the meeting that the annual general meeting (AGM) of the Association will be held on July 10. The venue will be selected soon. At the same time, it has also been decided in the meeting of the Managing Committee that an indoor academy will be built near the Women's Academy on the Gymkhana ground, so that the players will be able to practice even in rain. As the project report has been submitted, it will be materialised soon.
It has also been decided in the meeting that the registration fee of players and clubs charged by IDCA has been increased by 25 per cent. IDCA had halved it last year due to Covid, but now there will be an increase of 25 per cent at par with the pre-Covid amount. That is, players will have to pay up to Rs 750 for registration. At the same time, clubs will also have to pay more fees. He said that IDCA will prepare a pool of 25-30 players for under-12 age groups, who will be given free basic training for two years. When they turn 12 they will be able to join other clubs. After this is done, the next batch will be taken. All the officials of IDCA were present in the meeting.
