Water Authority sponsors Netball Association

| 17/04/2009

(CNS): Young netballers will be able to improve their skills with a temporary specialty coach thanks to the Water Authority Board, which recently approved a donation for $1,500 to support the Cayman Islands Netball Association (CINA). The funds will go towards hiring the coach, who will concentrate on assisting the youth of the Cayman Islands in improving their skills both as individual players and team development.

Water Authority Director, Dr. Gelia Frederick-van Genderen commented: “The Water Authority is thrilled to support the CINA which provides the youth of the Cayman Islands with leadership, encouragement and team building proficiency along with a wide range of skills in the great sport of Netball. This is an excellent opportunity for our Netball teams to utilise the expertise of the new specialized coach to improve their individual and team skills. We wish the CINA a fun and successful Netball season.”

Lucille Seymour, BEM, JP stated “When the private sector partners with sports organizations the results are outstanding in the development of young people. The Youth love sports and sports builds character. This relationship must sustain and increase so that more pro-social activities in particular programmes can be developed for children and young people in these islands. I have been working in sports as a community volunteer all my adult life and to me its influence is comparable to good parenting. I thank the Water Authority-Cayman for its contributions which aid in the social transformation of our youth.”
