This was evident this past Saturday 30th January as the La Clery community & field were hosts to the Trevor Daniel Football Development Programme & its 260 members & families. The day started with 830am registration for the quarterly In-House tournament, which was promptly followed by the distribution of uniform packages to those in attendance.
123 kids received Adidas balls, socks, and shorts and customized Jerseys, printed with their individual names & favourite number. This initiative which started in April of last year, is specifically targeted to build self confidence in these developing players. 9 months & $36,000.00 later, thanks to Lime, Sandals & parents’ contributions, the kids will from now on look and feel like professional athletes. We hope they will transfer this attitude from the football field into their classrooms, homes & everyday lives.
With the much anticipation finally calmed by the uniform distribution, the kids were now over eager to get to their business of the day, playing football. This time the tournament took on the fashion of a mini World Cup, with a total of 14 exhilarating matches being played and 67 exciting goals being scored. The members played in 4 age categories; Under 14’s, Under 11’s, Under 9’s & under 7’s and teams were given names of countries.
