Great Sports Camp for children of all ages to be enjoyed during Barbados holidays

Children on Barbados holidays will get to enjoy a set of great sporty activities during their time in the Caribbean island. Being renowned for its love of sport, Barbados has created a unique camp designed for children providing them with a fun and wonderful way to encourage kids of all ages to improve their skills and meet new friends. The camp has been a brilliant success in the past two years, so we look forward to 2010 being even better!

The camp will be coaching children on three popular sports, cricket, football and netball and children attending the camp will be a mix of those on Barbados holidays and local Barbadian children. They will be split into ability and age groups.

The camp is located at the University of the West Indies and runs from 10am to 3pm each day, with plenty of water and food breaks.

Cricketers who will be coaching the children are Gladstone Small, Dean Headley, Graham Hick and Desmond Haynes
Football coaches are Mark Bright and John Salako.

Netballers are Alex Astle, Olivia Murphy, Fiona Murtagh and Kendra Slawinski.

"I am sure the kids will love meeting the sports personalities and hearing what it is like to play in the disciplines of football, cricket and netball at the very highest level." - one of the sports coaches expressed.

The coaching will take place from 3rd August to 27th August 2010. Local coaches will be assisting from the Barbados Football Association, the Barbados Netball Association and the Barbados Cricket Association who will help run the sessions to ensure every kid enjoys great sporty Barbados holidays.

An event company runs the logistics of the camp on a day-to-day basis, on behalf of the Barbados Tourism Authority.
