The Fijian All Stars Sports Academy is planning a bigger and better sports programme next year to help get more young kids involved with sports.

Last week, the academy presented certificates to the participants to recognise their hard work throughout the year.

Christine Badia said this year was a trial year for them and she was impressed and happy with the progress.

“We started with five and we ended up  with 180 kids,” Badia said.

“Kids in Fiji are so talented but they are starting way too late,”she said.

“I really want them to start at a younger age to really give them a pathway to be potential future Fiji representatives.

“It’s been a fantastic year and we are really looking forward to next year to working with Vision Group and with Fiji Sports Council.

“I honestly see some kids who have potential who can make it all the way to the international scene. I really want to nurture these kids and help them grow.”

The academy started with tennis and football and will introduce rugby league and rugby in 2016.
