BVIFA football school programmes on hold, but back soon!

Whilst more and more football will undoubtedly take place before the year is out, the ever popular BDO Primary School League and the BVIFA’s High School League are on hold with a possible start date early in 2018. Photo: Provided
ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Despite the great news that schools will be slowly re-opening in the aftermath of the two devastating hurricanes, Irma and Marie, the BVI Football Association’s After School Football Programme is still on hold for now.

The situation, though, will change very quickly and once suitable, save venues can be confirmed, the programme will be up and running.

Whilst more and more football will undoubtedly take place before the year is out, the ever popular BDO Primary School League and the BVIFA’s High School League are also on hold with a possible start date early in 2018.

Meetings will take place over the coming days to see how best to engage the youngsters in football, once there are safe environments and to rebuild the After School Programme, which will continue to provide a meaningful avenue for youngsters to stay fit, healthy and also provide a welcome relief from the day to day stress caused by the hurricanes.

High School Football, will not be overlooked with visits to be ongoing to those institutions re-opened to evaluate needs, equipment and suitable space.

Additionally, the BVIFA will be looking to re-establish its databases and contact all those who have been involved in the game and aspire to reach representative levels.

One of the more important tasks will be to actually see how many players are still in the territory and then track down those who have left.
