TAKE NOTICE that there will be a Special Sitting of the

Tobago to pay tribute to Mr. Justice Kangaloo
(deceased), former Judge of the Court of Appeal.

Dated this 24th day of July, 2013.
athletes registered for the testing pool must follow
their "whereabouts" filing obligation, This involves
submitting a 60 minute time slot each day between
6am and 11pm indicating where they can be found
for an entire year.
While there are opportunities to have this infor-
mation updated, the important thing to note here
is that a certain amount of privacy is surrendered
but this sort of protocol has become deemed nec-
Another area of lifestyle that can sometimes affect
our younger elite athletes in particular involves mar-
ijuana as is quite culturally commonplace in the
Just as second-hand cigarette smoke has been
proven to affect humans just by inhalation, the mar-
ijuana smoke once inhaled can cause an athlete to
test positive in a drug test by WADA.
As such, an aspiring elite athlete needs to have
the discipline to act responsibly once they realise
their environment has changed to include such
activity as can happen in a variety of ways and set-
tings moreso in island life.
With great reward always comes great respon-
sibility. To expect otherwise is to show your unsuit-
ability to be considered an elite athlete.
There are a great many responsibilities that accom-
pany the glam and glory of athletic stardom and
recognising the requirements as mandated by WADA
are in no way the least of them.
As a matter of fact, breaking any of their mandates
can mean losing everything else that was sacrificed
on the way there.

Talent scouts from the T&T Foot-
ball Association (TTFA) will pay a
keen interest in this year s rebranded
Republic Cup National Youth Football
League, from August 4 to September
1. The competition was officially
launched at Republic Bank s head
office, Park Street, Port-of-Spain, yes-
terday and several changes were made
to the tournament which was formerly
known at the Republic Youth Cup.
The changes were made in a col-
laboration with the TTFA.
Two of the three divisions, the U-
13 and U-15, will play in an 11-a-side
format on a standard international
fields, as mandated by the TTFA.
The U-11 division will be played on
a half sized field with smaller goal
posts, while girls will be allowed to
play along with the boys in the U-11
and U-13 divisions.
The TTFA has indicated that every
child in the competition will become
a registered footballer under the local
governing body, thus giving all par-
ticipants an advantage of being recog-
nised and an opportunity to make it
through the ranks in national youth
Speaking at the launch, TTFA media
officer Shaun Fuentes reminded the
audience of the next month s inaugural
Concacaf Under-15 Championship in
the Cayman Islands,
"The TTFA will have coaches visit
some of the matches as part of the
talent search. Indeed, a demonstration
of our seriousness in youth football
has already been shown by an early
visit, in his first assignment since
returning to out shores, by Leo Been-
hakker and head coach Stephen Hart
to the U-15 national team training ses-
sions, in Woodford Lodge, Chaguanas,
on Tuesday. Currently, as we are here,
they are involved in a meeting with
technical director Anton Corneal on
the way forward," said Fuentes.
Organisers are hoping to attract 90
teams from six zones, with Tobago
expected to produce 18 teams.
The winner in each of the three
divisions will walk away with $5,000
cash, medals and a trophy. The run-
ner-up and the third placed finisher
will receive $3,000 and $2,000,
respectively, along with medals.
Group marketing and communica-
tions manager at Republic Bank, Anna-
Maria Garcia Brooks, said the rebrand-
ed competition, which has previously
attracted over 2,000 young footballers
annually, will work alongside All Sport
Promotions and the TTFA "to take
our involvement in football to the next
level and to align it even closer to the
needs of the sport and the plans for
the governing body in T&T."
Garcia-Brooks said the league will
eventually be a natural feeder into the
more established National Super
League and TT Pro League competi-
The first weekend of competition
will be held on August 3-4, and will
continue every weekend at different
zones until the final day on September
1. Registration, which is $500 per team
will close on August 2.
