Our vision is to educate kids and the broader Sharon community about cricket while contributing to the development of the sport.
The vision for SYCA was established in the spring of 2015.
We approached the Sharon Recreation Committee and School Committee to approve our proposal for a cricket pitch to be laid at the Sharon Middle School baseball field. They were overwhelmingly supportive and in summer of 2015 the cricket pitch was made with contributions from members of Sharon Cricket Club!
The first (soon to be) SYCA Clinic, held in summer of 2016, was a small friends and family affair, was conducted with total enrollment of under 15 children.
In Spring 2017, the SYCA as an organization was officially founded. Enrollment grew by leaps and bounds, eventually peaking at 58 students!

At his day job, Prashant is the Director of Management Consulting at PwC. During his off hours, as he says, Prashant likes to create something from nothing.
His passion for cricket along with his desire to build new things ignited this idea and spurred him to found the Sharon Youth Cricket Association.
