Undaunted by the heavy rains that fell for the better part of December this year, athletes at Sadili couldn’t miss an opportunity of taking advantage of training with visiting volunteer trainer, Mr. Dan Limbago who is the national manager of National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL), at the United States Tennis Association (USTA), assisted by Sadili Oval’s own; Dr. Elizabeth Odera, (Director of Sadili Oval Sports Academy). Dan brought with him valuable learning materials on life skills from the NJTL programs, which he was keen to share with the young trainers to include in their daily sessions. He also got a chance to visit the African Sport and Eduation Fund-sponsored students in their homes in Kibera, and was very impressed with their determination to work hard, as well as their committment to assisting each other.
From the Basketball court, volunteer coach and former US college star player, Mr. Nick-Caro O’Neil Golding (from Chicago, USA), an Instructor with MPAC Sports in the U.A.E Dubai had intense sessions with students who were eager to fill their curiosity and skill on the game. Their determination written all over their faces was a clear indication of how well they would like to excel. Speaking to Sadili Oval’s Evelyne Guchura, Mr. Nick-Caro said that he had seen a lot of potential in the Kenyan youth training at Sadili Oval Sports Academy. ‘We need to tap this talent at a young age for the fundamental basics so as to grow the talent in the game with time.’ said Nick. He hopes that during his stay in Kenya, he is going to offer some innovative developments in sports especially starting from the primary schools level, while working together with various partners involved
