The Coach Felix Academics and Sports Foundation (CFASF) Free Holiday Tracks and Field Clinic which ended on Saturday at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium (ABS), Kaduna, led to the discovery of several budding talents.
Coach Felix Osiebe who is the founder of CFASF expressed this while fielding questions from newsmen at the closing ceremony.
He said that the clinic which featured no fewer than 43 children aged between six and 16 was an eye opener.
“Many talents were discovered. Some never believed they could even run round the tracks until they were motivated to do so here at the clinic and they are improving by the day,” he said.
Coach Osiebe while speaking further, explained that they would keep a tab on those discovered so that they can nurture and groom them to stardom.
He praised parents who released their children and wards to attend the clinic for their foresight, while challenging others to take advantage of the inherent benefits to encourage their children to participate in sporting activities.
“Students that engage in sports are more likely to shun vices because at the tertiary institutions, they are either reading or preparing for NUGA or NIPOGA so they do not have time for societal ills like drugs or other vices,” he stressed.
He commended the management if the ABS for supporting future champions through the provision of their facility for CFASF use.
Speaking further, he appealed to sponsors to partner the foundation in touching the lives of more potential talents through funding.
