ZAMBIA HOCKEY DONATES TO OYDC
Zambia Hockey Association has donated 40 hockey sticks to OYDC Zambia to be used by athletes who are in the Teulings Youth Sports Challenge.
Association General Secretary Elvis Bwalya says OYDC Zambia is helping many associations through the Teulings Youth Sports Challenge stating that it is important to support the facility with sports equipment to be used by athletes at the grassroots level who in future are selected to join national teams and clubs.
Bwalya says the association has benefited more from OYDC Zambia testifying that the majority of athletes in national teams male and female are those who started and have undergone the doors of OYDC.
And OYDC Zambia programmes manager Mwange Kampamba who received the hockey sticks on behalf of the centre said the donation comes at the right time when the centre is organising the midyear competition.
She says athletes will enjoy the sticks which is a good gesture from the association. Kampamba was joined by OYDC Zambia finance manager Benjamin Tembo in receiving the donation.
