is here again folks, the most exciting and far reaching, sports development
camp on the island, the National Sports Council (NSC) Summer Sports Camp 2019! Expecting
to host approximately 1200 campers (Ages 8-16yrs) for a six week period from
July 8th to August 16th, the camp will provide coaching to the young charges in
29 disciplines across twelve venues. Exciting sports to be coached include
cricket, football, volleyball, table tennis, chess and basketball, taekwondo,
bodybuilding, body fitness.
overall aim is to introduce young persons to new sports, encourage the
development of others in their preferred sports and generally to develop
knowledge and discipline, so that future stars can be born that will develop
into outstanding Barbadian and world athletes. The process starts here with the
NSC camp and outstanding athletes like Kraigg Brathwaite and Akela Jones have
made their mark through this Camp.
the Camp is not sports alone and also seeks to develop the social, educational
and cultural side of the athletes through exposures to cultural tours and
workshops including, the # 1 Bajan Bus Stop, Sunbury Tours and the Beyond
Limits experience. Workshops include those from National Council of Substance Abuse
and the National Anti-Doping Commission (NADC) on drug prevention in sports, Crime
Stoppers Prevention as well as a Meet the Media and Sagicor Insurance workshops
to highlight the aspects of those two important sectors. The National Sports Council Summer Sports Camp
is generally a treasured one, with memories to last a lifetime, be there!
