– turns its attention to Essequibo
Already touted to surpass the record number of entries submitted in any of the three previous editions, preparations for the commencement of this year’s Digicel Schools Football Competition tournament is hitting high gear thanks to astute planning by the Organising Committee.
Since its inception, sponsor representatives including CEO of the Company
Gregory Dean and Head of Marketing Jacqueline James have consistently echoed similar sentiments about the whole aim of the Company’s efforts which according to them is to lift the general standard of the game locally.
To this end, the Organising Committee has constantly reviewed every tournament and made improvements where necessary, all directly related to enhancing the product at every level.
This year has seen an increase in the number of Coaches Workshops held and the general feedback is that they were well attended and received and while the standard of play on-field has steadily improved, the Committee has made a concerted effort to get more teachers and coaches involved in helping to increase their own knowledge of the sport so that when they return to their respective schools the information gathered will be efficiently disseminated.
Following Workshops in West Berbice and Lethem, Digicel hosted anther of its kind in Linden recently where participants were lectured on various topics of the sport including improving goalkeeping techniques, role of the coach, environmental and safety, technical development, Hydration and Nutrition, Injury Prevention and Treatment, Laws of the Game, Team and Game Management and Practical sessions.
The Facilitators of the Workshop were Coaches Brian Joseph, Denzil Thompson and Abdulla Hamid and at the end of the two-day sessions the participants were then asked for feedback, before being evaluated.
Digicel Sponsorship and Events Manager Gavin Hope speaking with this newspaper said that another Workshop is scheduled to be held on May 29 and 30 at Dartmouth, Essequibo. Meanwhile, the Launch which is set for June 6 will be held in Linden.
