Tournament gives thousands of local kids a chance to play Canada’s
fastest growing sport

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 29, 2014 /CNW/ – Today, Mayor Hazel McCallion
helped kick off the 2014 CIBC Trophy Mayor’s School Cricket Tournament,
an annual event that brings together multiple cricket teams from middle
schools and secondary schools across the GTA. Alex Dhanjal, an Ontario
Trillium Foundation (OTF) volunteer, attended the event and formally
congratulated CIMA on the work it’s been doing after receiving a
three-year long OTF grant in 2013 to help get more Peel Region youth
playing cricket.

As Canada’s fastest growing sport, cricket engages and brings together
Peel Region’s richly diverse multicultural communities; and through
this program, thousands of young people have access to a healthy
activity in their community.

Other participants at today’s launch event included:

  • Janet McDougald, Chair of the Peel District School Board
  • Mario Pascucci, Chair of the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School
    Board
  • Michael Lam, Deputy Chair of the Chartered Institute of Management
    Accountants (CIMA)
  • Raza Hasan, Senior Vice-President, CIBC
  • Alex Dhanjal, Volunteer Ontario Trillium Foundation
  • John Moore Host of Moore In the Morning, Newstalk 1010 was the event’s
    MC

“On behalf of Council, I’d like to congratulate both the cricket
volunteers and players for their commitment to their sport,” said
Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion. “We have a history in Mississauga of
working with our community to foster active participation in sport and
the growth of cricket has contributed to that success. I’m proud to
honour young cricket players with the Mississauga Mayor’s CIBC Trophy
at today’s recognition event.”

Dozens of students joined today’s event where the 2013 tournament
winners and runners-up were presented with the CIBC Trophy, and five
individual cricketers from the Peel Region schools were presented with
special recognition awards for excellence.

“CIBC has proudly supported this program since its inception because it
encourages children in our communities to get active while introducing
new fans to Canada’s fastest growing sport,” said Hasan. “We look
forward to presenting the CIBC Trophy to this year’s tournament
champions.”

“CIMA members understand that, even for accountants, numbers are only
the beginning. Real value, to a business or to the community, comes
from knowing how to bring together strategy, teamwork and
perseverance,” said Lam. “Cricket helps develop these skills, and the
Mayors School Cricket Tournament — CIBC Trophy is a great way to bring
young people together across the GTA. This year the event is bigger and
better than ever and I am very proud of the fantastic work the done by
the CIMA volunteers to make the tournament a success.”

This year’s tournament takes place May 12 to 16, with finals on May 31
at the Brampton Soccer Centre. School teams wishing to take part must
