(CBFC): FC International of Grand Cayman hosted a one-day football camp on Cayman Brac on Saturday, 21 September, at the football field on the Bluff. Technical Director Elbert McLean led the camp with 43 children in attendance, ranging from ages 4-16 years old. Brac Sports Instructor Mitchum Sanford introduced the FC International coaching staff, which consisted of Coach Elbert McLean and his son, Carlo McLean. Coach Elbert is also the head coach of Bodden Town FC and the Bodden Town Primary School. Carlo is following in his father’s footsteps and assisting him in coaching duties at football camps across the islands. The camp got underway at 9am with the McLean duo leading the children in a dynamic warm-up routine followed by stretching. 

Camp participants were treated to an assortment of drills, games, laws of the game and knowledge of the field markings. Cayman Brac FC Grassroots coach, Ashton Ferguson, assisted with leading the 4-6 years division, while the McLean duo took the 7-16 age groups.

Camp participants were each treated to a free lunch, plus a t-shirt and a football at the conclusion of the camp. Much thanks to FC International for their continued dedication in providing football camps to communities in the Cayman Islands.

FC International President Kennedy Ebanks was on hand throughout the day to speak with parents and participants. He also presented the participants, coaches and parents with camp t-shirts. Thanks to Zoe Vassel for management of the refreshments and lunch, to Deputy Premier Moses Kirkconnell for providing the accommodations for the two visiting coaches, and the PWD for providing a tent, which helped provide shade for participants and parents. Thanks to the parents and guardians for making sure the children attended the camp, and the participants themselves for their attendance.
