Friendly football fixture helps men and boys bond

| 02/12/2014

(CNS): A friendly football tournament looks like it has become a fixture of the International Men’s Day (IMD) activities. Held on Saturday 22 November around 100 players took part in the matches designed to encourage young boys and men to engage in positive male bonding while engaging in healthy activity. First place winners Team United (16 years and up) sponsored by the Office of Complaints Commissioner and Team YFP (13 to 15 years) sponsored by Cayman National Bank won the $500 cash prize for their respective age groups. Each year, the Cayman Islands joins other countries around the world who celebrate the achievements of men and boys each year.

Led by the Department of Counselling Services’ Family Resource Centre (FRC), this is the fourth year that the tournament has formed a part of the International Men’s Day programme.

Organizers expressed special thanks to event sponsors: Davenport Development, Island Taste, Estella Scott-Roberts Foundation, Cayman National, Office of the Complaints Commissioner and Dart.
