Potiki Sports back on

Tuesday 2 February 2010 | Published in Regional


BUILDING a strong foundation of skills and techniques for fu¬ture Cook Islands athletes is the aim behind the Potiki Sports programme starting on Satur¬day.

The junior sports develop¬ment programme aims to teach children a wide range of sports skills and techniques they can build on as they move into the sport code of their choice.

The sports programme run by the CISNOC sports develop¬ment unit is targeted at children aged five to 13 years.

Children will be introduced to a wide range of sporting ac¬tivities which help them under¬stand different sports and have fun at the same time.

The programme will run for two hours every Saturday at the BCI Stadium in Nikao.

The day’s activities will start at 9am and finish at 11 o’clock so parents can drop the kids off and do the family shopping while the youngsters have fun learning and playing sports.

The programme is free. Par¬ents asked to supply children with comfortable footwear and a bottle of water.

For more information on the programme call Elizabeth Tou at the CISNOC office. - MW
