Share post:

PLAY IS THE BEST MEANS OF LEARNING, and above all, youngsters should have fun. This was the concept that attracted 110 boys and girls to the Barbados Football Association’s (BFA) grassroots football summer programme.

Despite the heat, resulting from high temperatures and low wind speeds, the programme, which was mandated by FIFA, still kicked to the end, on Thursday.

“We had no medical challenges due to the recent [increase of heat] from the sun – we took more water breaks,” said coordinator Adrian Donovan.

The BFA has embarked on a very aggressive grassroots programme, and is in the forefront in the region in hosting these activities, he said.

“The grassroots programme is for everybody regardless of race, religion or sex,” said Donovan.
