The Ministry of Sport will host a Capacity Building Workshop for Coaches at Cocoyea Cultural Centre, San Fernando on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th February, 2012 from 8:30am to 3:30pm.
This programme is a continuation of the “Taking Sport to Rural Areas” programme which was launched on June 16, 2012 at the Toco Composite School Auditorium, Galero Road, Toco.
Just a few days ago the Ministry introduced coaches and distributed equipment in the following areas.
• Monday 18th February at the Tabaquite Recreational Grounds
• Tuesday 19th February at the Toco Composite School, Galera Road, Toco and,
• Wednesday 20th February at the Mayaro Indoor Facility
This is also a part of the rural developmental programme.
The Ministry of Sport’s “Taking Sport to the Rural Areas Programme” seeks to address the challenges plagued by the rural areas through the medium of sport, by providing immediate improvement of infrastructure, equipment, as well as opportunities for capacity building and enhancement for all coaches, volunteers, etc.
This Programme is expected to enhance the lives of people in the rural areas through recreation, sport and social interaction, to empower the people and build positive relationships throughout the community, it also serves to identify potential talent within the community for further development by implementing a sustainable development programme that would help create/add to the pool of talented athletes to clubs and national teams. This would be achieved by conducting training programmes in various sporting and coaching disciplines of track & field, basketball, cricket, netball, football, volleyball.
