‘Adopt a Secondary School’ Football
The Saint Lucia Football Association [SLFA] Inc. continues with plans to formally launch its ‘Adopt a Secondary School’ Football development programme.
According to FA sources, the program is scheduled to kick off later this month.
Consequently, the SLFA held another planning meeting with the coaches who will be involved in the execution of the one-year Pilot Programme. The Coaches were brought up to date with the developments thus far, by the SLFA’s President, Lyndon Cooper and Programme co coordinator John Sealy.
This meeting was held on Monday January, 6 at the SLFA’s base in La Clery.
Subsequently, both the SLFA’s President and Programme coordinator met with the Principals and Physical Education Teachers of the schools involved in the programme to further appraise them and receive feedback on the way forward for the successful implementation of the programme. Thus far, sates an SLFA official, the feedback has been very positive and everyone is looking forward to its implementation.
Sessions will be held four times weekly at each school, – twice for the males and likewise for the females. These will be conducted at a time period following consultation with the Principal and the Coaches.
The SLFA will provide the necessary equipment required to run the programme at each school, and thus far these include ten Footballs, twenty Markers and eleven Bibs. Cones will be provided at a later date. In addition, every school will receive a set of uniform for eighteen players, inclusive of shirts, pants and socks.
Below is the list of Schools enrolled in the programme and the coaches assigned to them. The designated coaches for the Anse Ger and Clendon Mason Memorial Secondary Schools will be named shortly.
