NAPSAC calendar coming
An eagerly ANTICIPATED EVENT on the sporting calendar, the National Primary Schools Athletics Championship (NAPSAC) will now be featured in a calendar of its own.
The almanac, which will be available one week after the completion of NAPSAC, will feature all of the competing primary schools from across the five zones as well as a plethora of athletes of all ages.
Coordinator of the initiative, Angelina White, told MIDWEEKSPORT that the calendar would help to serve as memorabilia, especially for parents and schools.
“The calendar will be full of pictures of the athletes who have competed at NAPSAC, and for those parents who have children who are competing, this will be a great keepsake,” she maintained.
“Some of the athletes who perform well at NAPSAC do not always make the transition to secondary school well. So with this calendar, their performances will be highlighted and they will always have something to look back on.”
She said that she was hoping to have the calendar available to the public two days after NAPSAC finished.
White noted that the full colour calendar would also highlight the champion schools and the top performers as well as some general knowledge about some of the island’s most accomplished athletes.
She revealed that plans were also in the making to embark on a similar project for the Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships.
She also disclosed that a calendar had been produced in 2012, but issues with the printery had forced a delay in distribution. (RB)
