The five-day camp, which had participation in five sporting disciplines: Athletics, Basketball, Boxing, Table Tennis and Volleyball, ran from Tuesday, December 16, to Saturday, December 20.

Several areas pertaining to sports were discussed, and participants were given an insight into the aspects away from the actual performances, which impact on them.

And it was all local personnel that delivered the topics: Earl Daniel looked at Psychology, with Carolyn Nedd dealing with Nutrition in Sports.

Dr. Lennox Adams dealt with causes, prevention and management of injuries.

Sports protocol and time management was the duty of athletics coach Woodrow Williams, and Cuban trained Carlton Daniel, who is still an active player in the sport of Table Tennis, dealt with massage therapy and its role in sports.

General Secretary of the National Olympic Committee, Keith Joseph, looked at Sports and Social Etiquette and Communication was the duty to deliver by Dr. Jules Ferdinand.

Each of the participants was exposed to specific training in their respective sporting discipline.

Last Saturday morning the participants were engaged in a session with their specific sport, as they focused on achievement and the way forward for the sports.

A sports symposium with elite athlete WNBA basketballer Sophia Young and distance walking legend Earl “Ole George” Daniel crowned off the five day session. (RT)
