THE 2010 edition of the T&T Youth Sport Camps is here. Running from August 3 to August 20, the camps are free to all children between the ages of seven and 17.
Continuing the Sport Company of T&T and the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affair’s drive to engage the nation’s youth in sport and provide avenues for talented up-and-comers to enter the sporting world, this year’s camps will build on the activities of the previous years.
Certified coaches will engage the campers and teach them the fundamentals of the 15 featured sporting disciplines (including athletics, basketball, cricket, cycling, football, golf, gymnastics, hockey, netball, rugby, sailing, swimming, table tennis, tennis, and volleyball) at more than 100 locations across Trinidad and Tobago.
As always, lunch will be provided for the happy campers, ensuring that they are properly fuelled for a full day of athletic endeavours. Similar to the 2009 camps, in which sporting icons such as Njisane Phillip and Denesh Ramdin made appearances, this year’s campers will get to participate in motivational talks with some of their favourite sporting heroes.
At the close of the camps, the children will receive certificates commemorating their participation in the 2010 T&T Youth Sport Camps.
The registration deadline is Wednesday, July 28 and parents may pre- register by calling the following numbers: 623-1954, 623-2448, 623- 9515, 624-2860, 625-4248.
Pre-registered children will be assigned to the venue and sport of their choice and parents/guardians must submit a completed and signed registration form on the first day of camp in order to complete the registration process.
Completed and signed registration forms must also be accompanied by a copy of the parent/guardian’s ID in order for their child to be admitted into the camp.
