TTFA presents 'one world' footballs to primary schools
Shaun Fuentes (TTFA Media via SW.net)


Friday, November 22 2013

THE Trinidad and Tobago Football Association commenced its distribution process of the indestructible footballs to schools at the Finals of the Atlantic LNG Primary Schools Finals at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Wednesday.

Twenty-one schools received 20 footballs each which TTFA Technical Director Anton Corneal says will aid in the development of the game at the respective schools. Corneal conducted “C’ License Coaching Courses for several Primary School Coaches this year in a collaborated effort with Atlantic LNG.

Representative from each of the schools received boxes of footballs from a presentation party that included Corneal, National Senior Team head coach Stephen Hart and TTFA General Secretary Sheldon Phillips. The distribution process will continue in coming weeks at various points in the country.

“This will go a long way in promoting the sport and the playing of the game at the various schools throughout the country,” Corneal told TTFA Media.

“What we noticed was there was an obvious need for more equipment at this level and these balls through an initiative between One World Futbol and the TTFA came at an ideal time as it falls directly in line with our youth development programme.” ”I think it’s going to help in a lot of ways. Some of the schools had two or three footballs which was not enough. It’ a first where we have ever given so many balls to schools or communities, These balls will also be used in our grassroots programme, In a few weeks we have a shoreline programme where we go to places like Mayaro, Icacos. Toco and other areas will receive manuals and coaching courses will be conducted in these areas,” Corneal added.
