Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Ricky Zililo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

THE Sports Lead­ers In­sti­tute of Zim­babwe (Sliz) will hold a three-day pre-sum­mer camp meet­ing in Nyanga to plan for their end of year con­fer­ence set for the same east­ern high­lands venue.

The third edi­tion of the Sliz Sum­mer Camp will run from Novem­ber 25-27 in the hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion.

Rus­sell Mhiribidi, Sliz di­rec­tor, said the pre­sum­mer camp meet­ing starts on Fri­day and is aimed at as­sess­ing the venues and fi­nal­is­ing top­ics to be pre­sented at the Novem­ber camp.

“Last year we were over­whelmed dur­ing the sec­ond edi­tion of the sum­mer camp held in Kariba and this time around we want to be bet­ter pre­pared for a big­ger num­ber.

“With the govern­ment set to roll out the phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion and sport (PES) syl­labus in 2017, we ex­pect a big turnout from the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

“This strate­gic meet­ing will help us come up with top­ics that seek to com­ple­ment and pre­pare par­tic­i­pants for the PES syl­labus,” said Mhiribidi.

He be­lieves PES will be a game changer. “And with the pol­icy start­ing from ECD (Early Child­hood De­vel­op­ment) up to A-level, it will be a game changer for sport in the coun­try as you know that the largest base of ath­letes in the coun­try is in the schools,” said Mhiribidi.

Mhiribidi, who is also chair­per­son of the African Sports Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tion (ASMA) South­ern Re­gion chap­ter re­spon­si­ble for or­gan­is­ing train­ing pro­grammes for sports ad­min­is­tra­tors in South­ern Africa, chal­lenged as­pir­ing par­tic­i­pants to regis­ter for the sum­mer camp early.

In the Kariba Novem­ber 2015 sum­mer camp, or­gan­is­ers were over­whelmed when num­bers sur­passed the 200 par­tic­i­pant tar­get by 67— @ ZililoR.
