The National Academy program, the recipient of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports 2012 Outstanding Youth Sports Program, graduated its inaugural year athletes Feb. 15 in a closing ceremony at GFA. The program’s second year will see some changes as per feedback from athletes, parents and coaches. Instead of a five-day per week commitment, the program will run three days per week. Each day session still will include time for reciting the Inifresi, or pledge, singing of the Guam hymn, homework and a light, nutritional snack and drink before a training session with designated, licensed coaches using a modern academy training curriculum.

Selected players will be contacted for an orientation session after tryouts. The second year’s first of four cycles will begin March 11 through to May 3.

Awards from Jamaican Grill restaurant will be presented to the top performers from both the boys division and the girls division after each cycle.

For inquiries regarding the program, contact the GFA Main Office by calling 637-4321 or send an E-mail to info@guamfootball.com
