spot_img

Following on the heels of recent visits by Mr. Howard Mc Intosh, CONCACAF’s Manager Executive, to oversee the elections of the St. Lucia Football Association Inc and a three- member delegation from FIFA to assess ongoing FIFA Forward projects in St. Lucia, the SLFA Inc. will again play host to another team of officials from CONCACAF.

Ms. Jennifer Roche of the Generation Amazing / CONCACAF programme will lead a three-member delegation to formally consolidate the work the SLFA Inc. has done to establish the programme in St. Lucia. The delegation, which arrives here on Sunday 12th, February 2023, will meet with SLFA’s president Lyndon Cooper, and later with officials of the Ministry of Education.

The team is also expected to visit a number of the Primary Schools selected for this project. While here, two members of the delegation will conduct a training session with coaches who have been selected to participate in the programme.

The SLFA Inc. has thus far identified twenty-five coaches and twenty-five primary schools for this initiative.

The Generation Amazing / CONCACAF programme examines the concept of Football For Development and therefore seeks to use football as a tool to develop communities while reducing or eliminating social ills.
