No fewer than 300 youths from ages four to 18 are participating in the month-long maiden Lagos Summer Sports Coaching Clinic, which began at Abesan Youth Centre, yesterday. 

The event, which the organisers said is the first of its kind, will run until the end of this month, with participants expected to take part in volleyball, athletics, basketball and football.

Participants would also be taught basic information about each sport, as well as practical knowledge.

Chief Executive Officer of Wonderland Sports, Tayo Adeyemo, who is the organiser of the event, said the one-month programme will have both morning and evening sessions.

He added that at the end of the capacity training, participants would be awarded certificates of participation. According to him, the target is to empower youths to see sports as a great opportunity to become successful in life.

Adeyemo added that participants would also learn more about the technicalities of each sport, as well as time and team management.

He said participants would be encouraged to see sports as an avenue through which they could also receive scholarships to study overseas and become successful athletes.

“There are plans to bring some sports icons to inspire the athletes, while all the participants will be provided with sports kits and writing materials by us,” he said.
