BFA, NPPPSSA team up to empower primary schools

The New Providence Public Primary Schools Sports Association (NPPPSSA) recently hosted an impactful Generation Amazing (GA) workshop to provide training and equipment to enhance primary school sports programs across New Providence.

The full-day workshop, held at Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium, was attended by GA local facilitators Codisha Brown-Colebrook and Harold Romer, NPPPSSA President Latoya Sturrup, Ministry of Education Assistant Director of Education Dwayne Higgins and over 50 physical education teachers from Bahamian public primary schools.

Bahamas Football Association (BFA) Technical Director Bruce Swan presented a new format for the upcoming primary schools soccer tournament. The tournament will feature two age groups, under-10 and under-12, with games played over a four-week period. The 23 participating schools are grouped into north, south, east and west divisions, with three groups of six teams and one group of five. Matches will be played twice per week. The tournament kicks off on October 17.

The interactive workshop provided an in-depth overview of the GA methodology and how to incorporate social values into local school sports programs. GA facilitators demonstrated how to facilitate development through football and led hands-on practical sessions for attendees to experience it first-hand.

“This invaluable workshop provides our schools with the methodology, training and resources to strengthen sports programs and develop essential life skills in our students,” said NPPPSSA President Latoya Sturrup. “We look forward to seeing the positive impact in our community.”

The workshop is part of an ongoing partnership between the BFA and GA to provide comprehensive coach education and implement impactful youth football programs across The Bahamas.

The BFA and GA will continue collaborating to expand training and provide ongoing support for local coaches and sports programs. The workshop marked an important step in empowering primary schools to leverage sports for youth development.
