The Saint Lucia Football Association in collaboration with Choiseul Youth and Sports Council, the Ministry of Youth Development & Sports, and the Ministry of Education, have embarked on a grassroots programme to improve the standard of football in Choiseul.
This programme will be launched at the Piaye Playing Field on December 7 at 10a m in the form of a football festival. Students will be engaged in many football-related activities for the duration of the festival.
The Choiseul Youth & Sports Council President, Charde Desir, said: “This festival is to gain the interest of all stakeholders in the community, especially the primary school students that would be in attendance. It will also serve as a platform to launch the grassroots football programme as well as expose the assigned NICE coaches to the public at large especially the P.E teachers from the primary school in the community.”
