Female football enthusiasts got the opportunity to showcase their skills when Digicel, in collaboration with National Team Football star Shakeina Bush, hosted an all-girls football coaching clinic at the Cayman International School field on 15 August.
The clinic, which included representatives from Southern Nazarene University, kicked-off with exercise drills.
Young ladies ranging from age 5-22 years were seen displaying various forms of football tactics and techniques.
Bernie Bush, organizer and co-sponsor, expressed his satisfaction with the quality of play and reminded the girls of their accomplishments.
‘We are doing well knowing that the Cayman Islands have risen three places in the regional rankings. I would like to thank Digicel for their continuous support of this camp.’
Digicel’s presence was felt throughout the Clinic through various gears, souvenirs and football paraphernalia that were available to all participants.
According to Casandra Harris, head of marketing for Digicel Cayman, the telecoms giant ensured that the Clinic progressed smoothly.
‘Football is a great sport for all ages and genres and we are proud to be involved in women’s football.
‘We hope that through this camp and our current promotion, which gives back $5 to the Cayman women’s national team for every pink blackberry sold, that the rest of the community will get involved in showing their support and national pride.’
The girls showed much interest and excitement in working with Shakeina and other members of the National squad.
They absorbed tips and advice that were offered by the professionals. Shakeina Bush, one of the first members of the Cayman Scholastic Football Academy, ensured that all participants got involved during the intense session.
