Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

AS the count­down to the Zim­babwe National Youth Games con­tin­ues, of­fi­cials will to­day con­duct a fi­nal in­spec­tion of the games’ venues and ac­com­mo­da­tion fa­cil­i­ties to sat­isfy them­selves of Chin­hoyi’s pre­pared­ness to host the an­nual event. The games will be held from Au­gust 13-21.

He said the tra­di­tional Youth in Sport Con­fer­ence for team cap­tains, man­agers and coaches would also be held on Au­gust17. “The team man­agers and coaches will also have their own sport con­fer­ence, which will cover top­ics such as plan­ning and man­ag­ing mega sport­ing events,” he said.

Nheweyem­bwa said most prov­inces were now fi­nal­is­ing their team se­lec­tions, al­though only three had paid part af­fil­i­a­tion fees to the lo­cal or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee (LOC).

Bu­l­awayo, Mashona­land East and Mashona­land West have made par­tial pay­ments, but the SRC re­mains con­fi­dent all prov­inces will pay be­fore the Games.

Sport and Re­cre­ation Min­is­ter Makhosini Hlongwane of­fi­cially launched the games at the Chin­hoyi Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy last month. This year’s games, ex­pected to be of­fi­cially opened by First Lady Grace Mu­gabe, will run un­der the theme “Sport for a healthy and pro­duc­tive fu­ture”.
