Pre-Schoolers Set to ‘Kick off’ learning experience with donation from National Football Association
(EMU) – St. Kitts, April 22, 2013: Decked in FIFA Gear (International Football Federation Association) children of the Victoria Road Pre-School stood representing other pre-schoolers throughout the Federation who will be receiving Football gear from the National Football Association over the next few days.
The young bright eyed learners were eagerly anticipating their departure from the handing over ceremony when they would be able to play with what they consider to be toys, but which represents to the Association an early opportunity to develop future football/soccer greats.
President of the Organization Mr. Lenny Lake explained that the Association through its grass roots programme seeks to give children twelve years and under a head start in the game of football. He added that they had donated football gear to all the primary schools in the Federation last year and decided that it would be useful to give exposure to football at an even earlier age by giving them to two to five year olds.
Mr. Lake said his association’s philosophy is simple. “Football should be played by everyone, for everyone, everywhere!
Supervisor at the Victoria Road Pre School Canecia Warner expressed gratitude to the Football Association.
Ms Warner was complimentary of the Association’s foresight in introducing such an initiative.
The package includes footballs, and jerseys as well as protective gear.
