STOP Awareness in Navakai & Ba
FASANOC's Sports, Training and Outreach Programme (STOP) Champions continued to advocate against Non-Communicable Diseases, HIV/AIDS and its Play True programme.
STOP Champions Kinisimere Ravai and Annette Nainima (Womens Football) and Joji Veremalua (Karate) along with FASANOC volunteers Celeste Larkins and Katherine Bartley visited the Navakai youth and Ba women’s football athletes in Ba last month.
Former New Zealand Olympian and motivational speaker Barbara Kendall was present at the Ba Football Academy to share her experiences with the youth that were part of the day.
Barbara encouraged the youth to continue to train and be the best version of themselves.
She said that 10,000 hours of "deliberate practice" were needed to become world-class in any field.
New STOP Champions Annette and Joji said they were happy to be a part of the programme.
"This is also a time to be a part of something truly motivating," said Annette.
"Joji and I are being role models for the community and we want to be the best version of role models."
Close to 40 youths were a part of the STOP awareness in Navakai and Ba.
