FORTIS TCI Continues Partnership With The Local Youth Football League
An opening ceremony was held at the the Turks and Caicos Islands Football Association (TCIFA) National Academy, on the morning of March 24th, 2018, for the 2nd Year of the FORTIS TCI Youth Football League, Providenciales.
The ceremony began with a parade consisting of the teams in full uniform, coaches, and referees. This was followed by remarks from TCIFA President, Sonia Fulford and Fortis SVP, Ruth Gadiner. After all the speeches , the teams played several small-sided football games. These games were engaging and equally, very competitive. There was the annual FORTIS TCI Penalty Power kick for Boys and Girls. The winners were Louis McCabe and Jodee Harvey.
The League is scheduled to kick off on April 7th at 8:30am, will last through early November 2018, with a summer break coinciding with the public schools’ calendar. It will involve all players from the Providenciales Youth Development Football Programme, ages 9-13 years old, assigned to teams with names that correspond with electrical energy.
The league was first announced at a joint press conference on February 6th 2017 with FORTIS TCI and TCIFA. Since the leagues’ introduction in 2017, the TCIFA Youth Development Football Programme has seen an increase in its young players.
