“Due to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Programme was slightly altered to allow our NSGB’s to incorporate the use of international coaches to assist a selected pool of junior athletes on island. But we are united and committed to the development of our young people.

“Today you will hear about some of the wonderful accomplishments of 10 junior recipients, in addition to exciting development plans from 5 NSGB’s.

“How they have worked hard to achieve excellence and how they hope to make an impact in our sporting community in the future.
