Home Sports ABSAA-KFDA set to host youth football festival
The Alex Bunbury Sports and Academy (ABSAA) and Kingston Football Development Academy (KFDA), formerly Kingston Grass Roots Soccer Academy, will today be launching their Easter Indoor Boys and Girls Community Football Festival at the National Gymnasium.
The festival will culminate on April 26 with competition commencing from 9:00 hrs and concluding at 16:00 hrs daily.
The main objective of the ABSAA-KFDA is to introduce young boys and girls to the game of football, and have them taught the game at an early age. Thus they would be able to play and compete, while having fun with no pressure.
The ABSAA-KFDA believes that young players need freedom of expression to develop as creative players, and that they should be encouraged to try their skills without fear of failure. The recreational and competitive Indoor Futsal League is a league for both boys and girls of all ages.
The leagues are action-packed in 5 vs 5 or 6 vs 6 formats, and players transition quickly from offence to defence, making for exciting games. Due to the smaller size of the field, players interact on every possession, making for a great learning environment. Every child at any age and any skill level will enjoy participating in the Indoor Soccer League.
The competition will cater for boys and girls in the Under-6, U9, U12 and U15 categories. Some of the teams to feature in the competition are Kingston, Tiger Bay ‘A & B’, Lodge ‘A & B’, Tucville, Mocha, West, Plaisance, East, and Grove. Trophies and medals will be at stake for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in the under U12 and U15 divisions.
Any person or entity desirous of becoming a sponsor can contact the following telephone numbers: Simone Bazil-Lyte: 688-1927, Junior Forrester: 696- 0658.
Some of the entities on board are Pet Shop, Namilco, NSC and Trophy Stall, GFF and ABSAA.
