Shimron Hetmyer was born in Cumberland Village, East Canje. He joined Young Warriors Cricket Club when he was 11 years old and was selected for the Berbice Under-15 team 2 years later. Though he did not score many runs in the Under-15 inter-county competition, his obvious talent earned him a place on the Guyana Under-15 team, where he excelled. As a result, he was selected for a WICB special training camp in St Lucia.

In 2009, while only 13 years of age he scored the only century (118) in the Berbice county Under-19 inter-zone competition. In September 2011, Shimron received the Sports Ambassador award from the Berbice Chamber of Commerce at its annual awards. He also hit a century in the 2010 Berbice Under-13 club championship.

As an aggressive opening batsman, he enjoyed considerable success in the 2012 Regional Under-19 competition, in Barbados. He hit a superb 116 for Guyana Under-19s against Windwards Under-19s in the 50-overs segment of the competition. In July 2013 he scored 105, off just 65 balls, against Trinidad & Tobago in the Regional Under-17 competition in Tobago - the only century scored by any player in the competition.

In October 2013 Shimron represented the West Indies Under-19 team in several Under-19 ODI matches against Bangldesh Under-19 in Guyana. He kept wickt in at least one of these matches.

Shimron Hetmyer attends Berbice High School. He represented his school at both cricket and soccer.
