The event is set to commence at about 8 am.

Already registered for the event, are seven youngsters from Nevis, who range from 10 years old, to early teens.

They are being coached by James Weekes, who after putting them through their drills on Saturday 19th March, stated that he is confident that all of them will do well in the upcoming event.

The youngsters themselves are highly motivated and confident and are actually relishing the challenge.

Danielle Connor, who has two daughters involved –one ten and the other eleven, thanked Weekes for his coaching efforts and also thanked Winston Crooke for once again organizing the event.

She too is confident that the children will do well on the big day and notes that she will be alongside, her as a cheerleader.
