Councillor Chandra Ramadharsingh, centre, is surrounded by children and parents at the recent youth sports clinic in Rousillac sponsored by energy companies NEC, NGC and Petrotrin. The clinic is part of the Building Communities through Sport project in south Trinidad.

Building Communities through Sport is a project of several state-owned energy sector companies, including NGC, NEC and Petrotrin. The initiative seeks to use sport as a means of developing communities in south Trinidad, especially at the youth level. As part of the programme, a sports clinic was recently held at Rousillac and it attracted a large numbers of youngsters and parents from surrounding communities. The clinic was officially opened by Councillor Chandra Ramadharsingh, the local government representative for the area.

The response was so good that plans are now underway to stage a series of cricket workshops for youngsters under the supervision of national cricket captain Daren Ganga and former West Indies batsman Gus Logie, two sons of the soil from the deep south. Another major part of the project has been a Twenty20 cricket tournament for community teams in the region. The tournament began three weeks ago and the final is scheduled for May 21 between Rousillac Sports Club and the Point Fortin Borough XI. Both teams have remained unbeaten throughout the competition with Rousillac scoring victories over Union Village and La Brea, while Point Fortin beat New Village and Cedros Sports Club.
