Las week´s five-day event attracted over 100 participants ranging from ages 7-18.
The camps were the first of several around the islands organised by the TCI Sports Commission in conjunction with the TCAAA, the TCI Basketball Federation and the TCI Softball Federation.
The main idea of the event was to get our youngsters back outdoors, but due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, organisers also used the time to teach fundamentals of the respiratory disease and provided the participants with the knowledge to function in a post Covid-19 world.
Youngsters from the islands of Grand Turk, South Caicos and North Caicos participated in the camps, which were jointly coordinated by the TCAAA and the Sports Commission.
The camps encouraged fair play, encouraged diversity, taught the participants that leaders must learn to take risk and be responsible for their actions and that athletes must be able to strike a balance, while striving to achieve high standards in the midst of adversity.
At the end of each day, campers were given a hot meal and at the completion of the week, each camper received a certificate, t-shirt, a backpack and other incentives.
The TCI Sports Commission in an invited comment issued gratitude to the TCAAA executive members, their team, parents and the individual Island communities for their support, and for being the trailblazers for the start of the new normal in sport development.
