Primary school across Dominica have all received football jerseys ahead of the National Bank of Dominica (NBD) 2019 Primary Schools Football Championship.
Giraudel Primary School, Trafalgar Primary School, Tete Morne Primary School, Bagetelle Primary School, Newtown Primary School, Bellevue Chopin Primary School, Grand Bay Primary School and the St. Lukes Primary School are the schools receiving.
A number of the schools suffered severe damages during the passage of Hurricane Maria in 2017 which led to the loss of uniforms and other sporting equipment.
The jerseys were donated by Karina LeBlanc through her foundation. Karina is a Dominican who has represented the Canada National Women’s Football Team (CNWFT) and is an Olympic bronze medalist.
Jerseys were also presented to one football team which participates in the DFA Women’s League, Dublanc Women’s Football Team.
The intention is to equip all the primary and secondary schools, youth football academies, and clubs with jerseys.
The Sports Division thanks Ms. LeBlanc and her foundation as well as donors in Canada for the support towards the football programmes here in Dominica.
