National team midfielder Densill Theobald believes the TTFA Youth Football clinics in collaboration with OneWorldFutbol and Chevrolet will influence more youngsters to learn about football.

Theobald, a member of the T&T 2006 World Cup squad, said, “I think this initiative to have clinics throughout the country will encourage more youngsters to want to learn the game and improve their skills.

They will see the fun that they can have with these footballs that will be given out. You can play with the balls anywhere and It kind of reminds me of how I played the game growing up, on the streets, on concrete, on sand and basically anywhere where you could put up temporary goals.

“We need more of this and this project will go a long way into allowing the younger ones the chance to play the game and get coaching at the same time.”

The TTFA, teaming up also with Lifestyle Motors, bmobile and BG T&T, launched the project on Monday and will stage its first clinic in Blanchisseuse on Saturday.
