Govt ‘committed to sports’
Character, career, community, cooperation and competition were critical components that were developed through the participation in sports.
This advice was given to the football and sporting fraternity in Barbados in an address by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart at the Barbados Football Association’s 13th Annual Awards presentation ceremony held at Deighton Griffith School last night.
Speaking in front of a packed hall of football aficionados including the under 17 team which was due to leave for the CFU second round in Jamaica today, Stuart said that there is a critical link between playing sport and fashioning a successful career through sport.
The Prime Minister also stressed Government’s continued commitment to football and sports.
