The implementation process has already begun and the training is expected to begin early February 2017 with 30 players (15 boys and 15 girls).
The project is being undertaken in partnership with Workforce Development Authority (WDA) and the Ministry of Sports and Culture (Minispoc).
Cricket was introduced in Rwanda in 2000 and the country became an ICC member in 2003. Since then, the sport has steadily grown with now over 10,000 cricket players in the country.
Srinath Vardhinen, vice president of RCA said: "We have all the equipment needed to run the academy as we now have the ground, practicing nets, balls and many others."
Bridget Uwineza, general manager of RCA said: “It will help us create an organised and safe environment to nurture the social and moral values of young people in the sport. Rwandan cricketers must begin playing professional cricket beyond the boundaries of Rwanda and that can only come from nurturing them in an organised system.”
Eric Dusingizimana, captain of national cricket team said: “We struggled to learn cricket, because we didn't have such a chance, but now is the time for our younger compatriots to learn the game, this is a great initiative towards cricket talent identification and development in Rwanda.”
