Coach Mills hails impact of football outreach programme


Former national footballer, Vurlon Mills, through his Football Academy, partnered with Siskin Group Inc. recently to host an outreach camp for 56 young boys and girls at the Georgetown Football Club ground, Bourda.

During the three-day football camp, players participated in drills that focused on learning the fundamental football skills, team building, and the importance of health and nutrition.

According to a release from the group, the camp was a fun and engaging opportunity for the players to continue to develop as young athletes and instilled important values, both on and off the field.

Multiple corporate partners participated in the camp, including MVP Sports, Toucan Distributors, Sunshine Snacks, Lucozade and Topco.

“We are happy to give these young boys and girls this opportunity,” said Mills, who directed the camp.

The Siskin Group’s Technical Director and former Chief Medical Officer of Guyana, Dr. Shamdeo Persaud, also spoke to the kids about the importance of health and nutrition.

The release further indicated that given the promotion of youth and sport camps in Guyana, “this is just the beginning for these young men and women to further develop character building, social skills, and their love for the game of football.”

The Vurlon Mills Football Academy and Siskin Group Inc. expressed a huge thank you to the local staff and coaches for helping to make this year’s football camp a huge success.

The two groups have expressed a commitment to continue growing youth and sport programmes that are safe, fun, inclusive, and accessible to all Guyanese.
