Athletics Fiji in conjunction with Oceania Athletics and the Pacific Sports Partnership Program (PSP) donated a brand new Kids’ Athletics kit worth 2000 euros and entered into an agreement with the Fiji National Sports Commission (FNSC).
The agreement is one of the major objectives of the PSP Program where the aim is the progressive establishment of Athletics and Sports in Primary Schools and Communities throughout the Fiji Islands. In a statement earlier today, Athletics Fiji Development Officer Albert Miller Snr and Athletics Fiji President Joseph Rodan Snr acknowledged the various programs and the nationwide reach of the Fiji National Sports Commission and how the agreement will aid the objective of the PSP program.
With the new equipment, FNSC’s development officers will be able to effectively run Kids’ Athletics Programs around Fiji. The Kids’ Athletics program was developed by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to educate kids into sport in general and thus promote a balanced and healthy lifestyle, and to attract and sustain the potential sporting stars of tomorrow. The program is not intended only for clubs and Member Federations but also for schools and all institutions who are interested in the well-being of children.
