“There is a tournament in each district and ultimately the winners of these tournaments represent their districts to come to the national. It is process that they go through; they play within their zone and then they go to their district finals and the winners come to the nationals. At this level these are our best under fifteen players we have in the country. At the nationals is where we see very good competition, very good display of skills shown by these youths. It is very important to start sports from this age, to be engaged in sports from this age. Going into primary school representing you school, going into high school and doing the same thing basically prepares you to represent your country at some level or the o0ther. So starting sport at this age and at this juncture is very important.”
