05 May JEP Sponsors AFNA
President & CEO, Mr. Wayne McKenzie, presents Marva Bernard, Treasurer & Chairman of AFNA’s local organizing committee, with WKPP’s sponsorship in aid of executing AFNA’s 2018 Netball competition slated for July.
AFNA (Americas Federation of Netball Associations) represents one of five regions of the International Netball Federation (INF) and is the governing body for Netball for the Caribbean and North and South America. WKPP has sponsored one of the leagues under this programme dubbed, “Americas Champion of Champions High Schools Netball Championship,” which will feature local high schools competing with other high schools, within the region.
Netball as a sport is nothing new to WKPP as we have provided several sponsorships to the world-renowned, “Sunshine Girls” over the years. However, this year we have joined forces with AFNA to host their inaugural regional championship, which will be showcasing as well as unearthing talents within our high schools. This display of healthy competition is welcomed at this time, where the national objective is to promote regional integration, which we believe WKPP is contributing significantly towards.
Jamaica will be hosting the first series of matches at the GC Foster College from July 15-21, 2018.
