The Belmopan Football Association (BFA) and the Belmopan Bandits, along with coach Leroy Sherrier Lewis, are conducting Grassroots Football training for children ages 6 to 17 at the Devon Beaton Park.
This past Saturday was the first of many training sessions. 66 participants showed up, both male and female. This youth football programme is to train/develop talent and foster special techniques.
Football is a universal language, and it is an integral part of local cultures across this nation. In Grassroots Football we have found that there is a perfect partnership within the FFB, BFA and the Belmopan Bandits, who are all united in the belief that the true power of football is in the connections that it creates between people and the great partnerships that it cultivates. We will be utilizing this Grassroots Football program in order to create a positive medium for the children of our community, to develop and nurture their talent, which in turn will have a positive impact in our community of Belmopan.
Chairman BFA: Marlon Tillett; Belmopan Bandits Manager: Kenneth Budna; Head Coach: Leroy Sherrier Lewis; Coaches: Mr. Derrick Gordon (Tiger Town Area), Mr. Hector Martinez (Salvapan Area), Mr. Boris Dominguez (Las Flores Area); Secretary BFA: Mrs. Jackie Pelayo.
