The Security Centre Youth Football League kicks off

| 20/02/2009

(CNS): The Security Centre Youth Football League, which is run by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, starts next Saturday, 28 February, on the playing field at Cayman International School at Camana Bay. Registration is at 11:00 am, although parents are encouraged to register online beforehand at www.flagfootball.ky to secure their children’s places. Games will take place on Saturday afternoons and the league will run for nine weeks. It will focus on teaching flag football in a fun and relaxed environment and is open to boys and girls ages 8 through 14.

The League’s sponsor, The Security Centre Limited, will provide uniforms, refreshments and all the trappings of a fun event, as well as enable local children free admission to the league.

President and CEO Stuart Bostock said, “American Football has not traditionally been well represented on Cayman’s youth sports scene so this new youth league is a welcome addition to the range of sporting activities available to our local children. The new league will help to stimulate interest in Football among young people, which we hope will lead to many more participants in the sport locally and maybe even scholarship or professional opportunities for some. With children of my own, I believe strongly that young people should be able to take part in the sports they want to, so The Security Centre is very proud to put its name to this youth football league.”

Spearheading the inception of the league is local barrister, Kyle Broadhurst, whose goal was to give local children the opportunity to play and learn about a sport that so many of them are interested in. “We are looking to establish The Security Centre Youth Football League as a regular fixture in the Cayman Islands. The league gives children a great opportunity to engage in physical activity and learn a popular sport. We wholeheartedly encourage parents to bring their children along to take part.”
