The T&T Football As-
sociation commenced a
grassroots workshop in
conjunction with the CON-
CACAF and UEFA at the Ato
Boldon Stadium yesterday
and it will conclude today.
The workshop will precede
the start of its 2017 Grass-
roots Festival which also
kicked-off at Green Park, Fe-
licity, Chaguanas, under the
management of the Central
Football Association (CFA).
With the help of the TTFA’s
Technical Department spear-
headed by Technical Director
Muhammad Isa, and assistance
from CONCACAF and UEFA in-
structors, the Grassroots Foot-
ball Festival Programme, aims
to reach out to players 11 years
and under in rural areas.
This initiative is being pro-
moted by FIFA as one of the
criteria for a country to receive
funding and ensure develop-
ment. Between May 13 – August
the TTFA will stage festivals at
different venues in the various
Regional Associations such as
the Eastern Football Association
(EFA), Northern FA, Central FA,
Tobago FA, Southern FA and the
Eastern Counties Football Un-
The TTFA described the
grassroots festival as the core
foundation of our development
mission, aimed at encourag-
ing girls and boys around the
T&T to play football without
restrictions. It focuses on the
deployment of football through
small-sided games, teaching
basic football technique, em-
phasizing the value of exercise,
and stressing the importance of
fair play. It also labelled the pro-
gramme as the base and foun-
dation of any football nation,
saying, “the bigger the base,
the stronger the structure.”
According to the football as-
sociation, “It is from here future
players are born. The greatest
footballers in the world all start-
ed at a young age. This initiative
with help fuel such players by
providing an opportunity for
them to be seen by the TTFA and
community while increasing the
players’ and communities’ in-
terest in football.”
England-based T&T senior national net-
ballers, Kalifa Mc Collin and Afeisha Noel’s
tough first season in the Vitality Netball
Super League in England continued when
they both suffered defeats in the Round 14
encounters last weekend.
On Friday, goal-shoot Mc Collin pushed her
personal season goal tally to 408 from 435 at-
tempts at a league best 93.8 shooting percentage
in a Celtic Dragons’ 48-60 loss to Team North-
umbria while a day later, Noel and her Severn
Stars were also handed a lopsided loss, 42-63
by Manchester Thunder.
With only four matches left in the round-robin
phase of the tournament, both the Dragons and
Stars are out of contention to qualify for the “Big-
Four” semifinals as they occupy two of the bottom
three spots on the ten-team table.
At the top of the table is Loughborough Light-
ning with a 13-1 record for 39 points, six more
than Wasp Netball and last year’s runner-up[
Manchester United (11-3).
A distant fourth is defending champion Surrey
Story with 24 points and an 8-6 record, the same
as Team Bath but ahead of goal-difference in the
race for a top four semifinal spot.
Sirens are sixth at 6-8 with 18 points followed
by Hertfordshire Mavericks (5-9) with 15 points,
Severn Stars (4-10) with 12 points and Team
Northumbria at 3-11 and nine points.
In their remaining matches, Dragons host
Storm (May 15), travel to Loughborough Light-
ning (May 20), entertain Wasps Netball (May 27)
and close out the season at home as well to Team
Northumbria on Saturday June 3 while Stars are
away to Sirens (May 15), host Team Northumbria
(May 19) and Hertfordshire Mavericks (May 26)
and end the season at Manchester Thunder on
