    Making a history in the field of football in Jaffna, a team of experienced coaches and players from the USA arrived in Jaffna to conduct coaching camps for youths and school children this week.

    With coordination of Security Force Jaffna, Mr. Gregg Davis, Mr. Evan Davis, Charles Johnson and Rodney Petersheim with their team leader Mr. Mathew Billman of Soccer Outreach Association, Pennsylvania conducted a three day coaching camp at Durayappah Stadium on 21st, 22nd and 23rd of July. Commander Security Force Jaffna Major General Udaya Perera attended the inauguration ceremony on Monday.

    About 375 youths from different leagues in Jaffna, Valikamam and Islands administrative divisions and school children took part in the programme. One motive of organizing this sports camp is to inculcate qualities such as patience, equality, courage and acceptance of victory and defeat alike. It helps eradicate war mentality and assist the process of reconciliation.

    A similar programme which gives training to players in Thenmaratchi and Vadamaratchi administrative divisions will be held at St. Michael’s grounds in Nelliady from 25th to 27th instant.

    President Sri Lanka Football Federation Mr. Ranjith Rodrigo assisted the Army to organize the coaching camp. Commander 553 Brigade Colonel Vijith Subasinghe coordinated it on behalf of the Security Force Jaffna.
