Assessment Will Aid in Preparing for Games Adequately

The role of the National Sports Council has been crucial in the organization of the coming games.  While it is the first time Belize is hosting the event, Aragon says the preliminary assessment is helpful since it helps to prepare adequately for the CODICADER Games.

“For them coming to Belize, it’s something good because they will assess us in terms that we are prepared and ready for the CODICADER Games that will commence in July, you know.”

“It is the first time Belize is hosting this particular event.  How involved, or what has been the role of the Ministry of Sports in terms of facilitating everything that is about to take place?”


Elodio Aragon

“Well, we play a big role.  Definitely the National Sports Council and our stakeholders, our communities, the schools, everybody is doing their part to ensure that we have a successful CODICADER Games.  This is the first time Belize is hosting such and event, you know, every time Belize has skipped and, you know, we’ve always participated in CODICADER Games but in other countries.  This is the first time that it came for us to host and I believe that we could do.  It is something that will look good for our country and it’s something that will put our name out there as Central America and I do think that it gives us a sense of pride and honor to know that we are able to host these kinds of events.  It takes a lot of work, a lot of logistical work.  You are talking a lot about finding resources, but we do believe that with the organization that we have and with the support that we’re getting from our stakeholders, from the schools, from the business sector out there, we will be able to bring success to the CODICADER Games here in Belize, you know.”


The CODICADER Games are slated to commence on July eighth.
