Another day of the TTFA/Nu Iron Nationwide Primary Schools project took place at venues in eight districts through the country on Wednesday.
Under the overview of TTFA technical director Anton Corneal and Director of Football Muhammad Isa, close to a thousand kids between the ages of 7-9 took part in two hours of exercises and drills under the guidance of TTFA certified coaches from the various districts.
Session occurred at Eddie Hart Grounds for St George East; Nelson Mandela Park 3 for Port of Spain and Environs; St Mary’s Government School for South Eastern; Palo Seco Velodrome for St Patrick; Montgomery for Tobago; Woodford Lodge, Chaguanas for Caroni district; TML Grounds, Farah Street in San Fernando for Victoria and Ojoe Road Recreation Ground in Sangre Grande for the North Eastern district.
Paul Decle, one of the TTFA programme coaches for the North, spoke about the clinic at Nelson Mandela Park which included participants from Carenage Girls Government Primary, St Agnes, Hokett Baptiste Primary, Morvant, La Puerta Government Primary School, St Crispin’s Anglican Primary, Rosary Boys RC and Lower Morvant Government Primary.
“The coaches did a great job today relating to the young ones and getting them involved in the drills. There was a lot of interaction and enthusiasm in the group which is among the key factors we are trying encourage in the kids,” Decle said.
“We had several exercises designed for today and some were a little bit harder than the others but there was still good participation and the kids seemed to enjoyed the most part of it,” Decle added.
