FEBRUARY: PLAYit DREAMit Boot-Camp
The first-ever PLAY it DREAM it Boot-camp which was scheduled for February 28, 2021, was held yesterday at Area 3 Football Pitch, Garki Abuja by 1 pm, with 55 Internally Displaced girls within the ages of 7-17, 3 coaches, and 6 mentors.
The boot-camp started with the arrival and registration of the beneficiaries, then a 10-minute fun-filled aerobic session, instructed by Anna Mambula, Programme Manager, FAME Foundation. This was done to help the girls prepare for the football exercise.
Following that was the 30 minutes football practice conducted by Coach Stephanie, PLAY it DREAM it, Boot-camp Coach.
The boot-camp came to an end with a virtual First Aid Training conducted in partnership with SportEdu+ and Zillion Consults, alongside a practical demonstration of all the sessions. The training educated the beneficiaries on what first aid means, the importance of first aid, what do to in case of an emergency on the field or anywhere, and the procedures involved in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
The translation of all the sessions was necessitated for better comprehension of the participants.
The next boot camp is scheduled to hold on March 27, 2021.
