Young netballers enjoy camp

There might not have been a large turnout at the Department of Sports netball camp in July but that did not kill the spirit of the young girls who turned up to learn the sport.

Around a dozen girls attended the camp held at the University College of the Cayman Islands Sir Vassel Johnson Hall from 10 to 14 July.

“It’s really cool and fun. We’re learning new things every day,” said 10-year-old Bodden Town Primary School student Micah Leon.

“I like the challenges and I like that it’s just really fun,” she added, pointing out that the most fun part is when “people are defending you and you get to see who will win”.

The camp also attracted seven-year-old Jahniya McCoy, also from Bodden Town Primary School. She explained her motivation for wanting to learn the sport.

“My mom used to play this game and I really want to play netball because I think it is so much fun and I really want to challenge myself. I was thinking that this was the perfect game for me,” she said.

After playing the sport for an entire week, Jahniya said: “This game seems really, really fun and I want to play everyday day of my life.

The camp director was Molly-Ann Moore, who was assisted by Cherry Whittaker, Lavern Ebanks, Ervin Palacio, Daneliz Thomas and Shania Ebanks.

This was one of a variety of camps that the Department of Sports hosted during the summer, focusing on key development sports identified by government.
