(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – On August 30 & 31, 2018 the Flow Trevor Daniel Football Development Programme (Flow-TDFDP) will bring together 300+ young football enthusiasts to participate in the long awaited Kick It Back to School Football Festival.
This is the first ever Redeemed Church of Christ youth outreach project in St Lucia and the intention is to make this a permanent fixture on the TDFDP calendar of activities. Kids 5 to 15 years will participate in 5 age categories to experience “Football with a difference!”.
Players in the U16, U14, U12 & U10 will each play 3 round robin matches on Day 1 & then a championship match on day 2, with a grand prize giving and award ceremony on Sunday Sep 02. 30 players 5, 6 & 7 years will have a free training clinic with foreign coaches.
The purpose of this event is two-fold; to have kids engaged in something they are passionate about just before heading back to school, while they receive a message of hope, peace & love, that the sponsors & organizers are confident will serve them well for their entire lifetime.
Amidst all the negativity & hatred that fills the airways & social media we want to bring some positivity to their young impressionable minds. During the festival there will also be a medical team at the field who will provide free medical testing to parents of participants, spectators & passersby.
The details of the festival are as follows:
