Coaches bash bleaching

first_imgEven though most schools have implemented rules and regulations to curb the bleaching phenomenon such as banning offending student-athletes from school representation, it is still a problem they have to deal with continuously.The extend of bleaching was evident in the recent schoolboy season with a majority of the participating schools’ teams featuring players who engage in skin bleaching.Star striker for daCosta Cup champions Cornwall College Jourdain Fletcher was probably the most recognisable student-athlete, with a toned skin throughout this season. His speed, skills, and goals were as eye-catching as his discoloured face, but coach Dr Dean Weatherly explained that students bleach ardently during holidays, so when they return to school, it takes some time for their original colour to return.”When he (Fletcher) came in the summer (camp), he had stopped, but I saw it creeping in towards the end of the season when it was coming around to Christmas. So up to that point, I mentioned it to him. But over the holidays, it seems he intensified his use of the product, so now he looks white,” Weatherly declared. “It’s not that we don’t try to prevent it, but when they are out of school for three to four weeks, we can do nothing.”Excelsior’s female football coach, Xavier Gilbert, believes the females’ admiration for the bleaching practice has strengthened the males’ love for the habit. He also feels that it’s the parents who should take the lead in stopping their children from altering their skin tone.”They (boys) do it because the females like it, and once females like it, it is going to be difficult to stop. Females, in general, like when males behave like gangsters, so if youngsters behave that way and females are attracted to them, then they are going to continue to behave that way and wear tight pants and bleach,” Gilbert said.”But the parenting is a big part of it, but when you send to call the parents, you understand why the kids do it because the parent bleach, too,” he added.Weatherly agrees.”We should start educating parents first and see how it goes. All schools should implement rules to prevent it from happening. If parents won’t put a stop to it, the school has to enforce the rule,” he reasoned.”It would be nice if posters and notices are put up to show how harmful it can be, just like how they educate about teenage pregnancy and drugs so they know the harmful effects,” Gilbert added.livingston.scott@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

first_img While the semi-finalists have virtually selected themselves, the focus will be on the battle for relegation in the Magnum/JB Rum/South Central Confed Super League competition. Manchester’s Hillstars copped a rare point against semi-final-bound Sporting Central Academy in a 1-1 draw. Hogarth Henry scored for Hillstars in the 48th minute. Sporting Central goalscorer was Kwesi Watt in the 12th minute. Holland Police Youth Club of St Elizabeth earned three valuable points against Ricam Academy, winning 3-0. Dilandrew Steven scored twice while Marlon Fletcher got one in time added on. There were no such luck for the Clarendon pair of New Bowens and already relegated Kemps Hill, who lost heavily. New Bowens went down 6-0 to semi-final contenders St Bess FC while semi-final prospects Tru-Juice drubbed Kemps Hill 12-1. Tru-Juice had two hat-trick scorers in Seivon Thompson and Tevin James. Alligator Pond, Porus in Manchester Major League final Manchester team stalls relegation fate Downs and Mile Gully are the early leaders of the Moorlands-sponsored Pat Anderson Under-17 football competition in Manchester, following second-round play earlier this week. Mile Gully, who scored a 4-0 win over 360 Degree on opening day, outscored Hillstars 5-2, courtesy of double strikes from Andre Campbell and Marlon Miller. They were also gifted an own goal by Hillstars. Downs also scored their second win, blowing away Manchester Academy 6-1 to follow up an earlier 2-0 win over May Day. There were also double strikes from Ramone Simpson and Jason Dyer. In other results, Star Zone Academy, who began with an opening 5-0 loss to Comfort, had better fortune after drawing 1-1 with Comfort, who are now on four points, while the Silent Hill- Mandeville United clash also ended 1-1.

The contestants will vie for trophy prizes in the categories boys’ 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18 and girls’ beginners, intermediary and advanced levels. In addition to trophy prizes, the winners in each category will also receive points towards their national ranking. The tournament director is Llockett McGregor. The second major trophy of the 2017 Manchester Football Association season will be decided tomorrow when Alligator Pond take on Porus in the final of the Magnum/Captain’s Bakery Major League. Alligator Pond has been the most dominant team in the preliminaries, and easily secured their spot after scoring in both halves to defeat Villa 2-0. Juave Adams had a dream semi-final, producing the only two goals of the match. Porus were made to work hard for their spot after outlasting Comfort 1-0. Kemoy Slowley’s goal two minutes before the half-time interval sealed the issue. Interestingly, Comfort, who had defeated Porus in the preliminary round, failed to capitalise on their opportunities. At stake in tomorrow’s final is the $250,000 winners’ prize and the automatic choice to represent the parish in next season’s South Central Confed Super League. Los Perfectos maintained their lead in the Jamalco-sponsored Manchester Division One competition after defeating DC Strikers 3-1. The teams were locked at 1-1 at half-time before Christopher Campbell’s brace in the second half provided cushion and eventual victory. The win was Los Perfectos’ fourth in five games and also made them the only unbeaten team in the league. Three teams share second place on 10 points. They are Old England, Silent Hill and Clandon Strikers. Earlier this week, Plouden moved to nine points with a 1-0 win over Mandeville United while Central United got their first win with a 4-0 drubbing of Hope Village.

Fireworks expected at Karting Karnival

first_img Hot talent The Jamaica Karting Association (JKA) 2017 Championship season picks up a gear at its second meet today at the Palisadoes International Raceway. The meet, dubbed Karting Karnival, will showcase the freshly minted 2016 South Florida Senior Champion, Christian Cole. Cole, who dominated the four-meet karting championship run through October to March at the Homestead Racing facility in Florida, claimed his second consecutive class title on March 26 by sweeping all his races. He is clearly a hot talent on a winning run and throwing him into the already torrid Rotax Senior class, which, at the JKA season opener on March 26, saw a four-way showdown among the 2016 Champion Jonathan Law, former Junior class champions Joshua and Justin Sirgany and veteran Senior class contender Matthew Williams can only result in fireworks for karting fans. Race action kicks off at 10 a.m. with qualifying for all classes. This will be followed by two rounds of racing with a break for lunch between. Each round of races consists of a set of pre-finals and finals for each of the six classes – potentially 24 races. Patrons interested in getting a taste of kart racing can rent a ride at the end of the day’s programme for a modest fee.last_img read more

That’s our calling card, it’s how hard and how aggressive we play on defense,” he said.But Slaughter knows the KaTropa are no pushovers as he prepares for a tougher fight from them come Wednesday in Batangas for Game 2.“We know TNT is a very dangerous team. We were able to play good defense on them now, but it wasn’t too long ago that they scored 120 on us.
