The Sport and Recreation commission (SRC) has expressed its commitment towards developing sports from grassroots level through engaging sports administrators on various aspects of sports.

The SRC embarked on a two-day training workshop for sports administrators in Mashonaland Central province in a bid to inculcate the evolving knowledge of sports administration and first aid requirements.

Speaking on the sidelines of the workshop, SRC provincial coordinator for Mashonaland Central province Mr James Maganga encouraged sports administrators to ensure a balanced diet for athletes and to ensure they stay clear from doping issues.   

“Training methods and nutrition in sports are key components in sports development. Care should be given to athletes who get injured during sporting activities and proper management should be instituted immediately,” said Mr Maganga.

Course participants who spoke to ZBC News applauded the gesture by SRC which enabled them to have a better understanding of all forms of sports and their requirements for the development of sporting activities at the grassroots.

The Sports Medicine Training Course was attended by 25 participants drawn from schools, the health fraternity and community clubs, as a starting point in encouraging the development of sports from the lower levels.
