Everton coaches to host Differently Abled football camp
« on: June 24, 2015, 02:13:40 PM »
A Differently-Abled Football Camp (DAFC) will be staged from 25 to 28 June. This camp will be the first of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago and will be hosted by Special Olympics Trinidad and Tobago and the Ministry of Sport.

Differently-Abled athletes deserve to be afforded the same opportunities as other athletes. With that in mind, Everton Football Club (United Kingdom) has sent a team of highly qualified disability coaches to Trinidad to provide the Special Olympic TT athletes with coaching assistance. The Everton FC coaches - Peter Livingstone, Michael King and Anthony Harden, will be available at a press conference on Thursday 25 June at 12 pm at the Chancellor Hotel and Conference Centre to share their vision for this inaugural Differently-Abled Football Camp. (All media are invited)

The Everton FC coaches will also be hosting a coaching seminar at University of the West Indies SPEC after the press conference. Coaches from Special Olympics TT and the local football fraternity will be in attendance.

DAFC will culminate with a day of unified football matches at Queen's Royal College Grounds on Sunday 28th June from 2 to 6 pm. Unified Football is a new global drive of Special Olympics International as it fosters inclusion and an appreciation for individuals regardless of their ability. These unified matches will be staged in conjunction with the Women's Premier League athletes.

For further information, Differently-Abled Football Camp Manager Amiel Mohammed can be contacted at 755-3734.
