There will be a match that features Scholastic Rural versus All Scholastic Urban and All daCosta versus the All Manning.
The youngsters will then be assembled in an All Schools team that will compete in the US for another match. This will be the last match of the series.
Keith Wellington; the head of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association, revealed that they have invited 30 coaches to scout Jamaican players.
Over the years, the All Manning versus All daCosta match has been the highlight of the schoolboy season. The competition offers the best players from each competition an opportunity to take the center stage.
The overseas college coaches will also scout players during the All Scholastic Rural versus the All Scholastic Urban match. Wellington confirmed that approximately 80 players will get a chance to showcase their skills in front of the scouts. The All Schools team is expected to travel to Florida in the upcoming weekend.
