Roseau, Dominica: Digicel continues to support the development of youth and sports in Dominica with the launch of its 2016 Kickstart Clinic which will see 30 young aspiring footballers receiving world class training from Manchester City Football Club (MCFC) coaches.
The boys, ages 14-16, have been selected from various football clubs around the island and will receive intensive training in a variety of football techniques on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th April at the Windsor Park Stadium. Digicel will also host an exhibition match involving players from the Newton Juvenile Academy, local sports personalities and Digicel Brand Ambassadors on Saturday 23rd April.
Digicel Dominica CEO, Richard Stanton, said; “We encourage the players to do their best during the two day Kickstart Clinic as it will go a long way to shaping their future in the sport that they love. We are excited to be hosting the Digicel Kickstart Clinic in Dominica once again and to be partnering with Manchester City FC.”
Dominica is among 14 countries across the Caribbean and Central America which the MCFC coaches are visiting to host the Kickstart Clinics. At the end of the two days, the coaches will select the top three players to move on to the Digicel Kickstart Academy. The boys will then have the opportunity to impress the coaches further, in the hopes of being among the top players who will get the chance of a lifetime to train at the Manchester City FC facility in Manchester, England.
