Erik asked the young players who benefited from the funding to work extra hard and improve in their academics’ side as well as the sporting side. “Through sports, you should perform even better and higher “he added.

The support stretches through even after one completes his high schools’ studies. Many individuals who have been in the development program have acquired University and College scholarships through the sport. With this advantage, the students were urged to perform their best both in their academics and extra curriculum activities.
