Byo Christian League hosts workshop


The Bulawayo Christian League (BCL) will hold a workshop at Raylton Sports Club tomorrow aimed at teaching players in the league rules and regulations of netball and football before the commencement of the 2012 league games on March 17.

Mpopoma Church of the Nazarene, Bulawayo Christian Centre, Sangano Revapostori, Cowdray Park and Entumbane (Seventh Day Adventist), UCCSA Njube, United Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa (UPCSA), Njube, Word of Life (Entumbane) and Family Impact make up the teams in the football section.

The teams participating in netball are Acts of God (Mpopoma), Bulawayo Christian Centre, Mpopoma Church of the Nazarene, UCCSA Njube and Sangano Revapostori.

BCL chairman Timothy Mandiwanza yesterday said: “We will be running an orientation workshop to cater for all sportspersons who will participate this season. We would also like to invite coaches and administrators from both sporting disciplines to come and conduct the workshop.”

Chief netball umpire for Bulawayo Metropolitan Province Nozipho Mpofu and a retired referee from Bulawayo are expected to impart their expertise on the rules and regulations of netball and football.
The league’s secretary Fungai Mundofa added: “We want to inform all the players of the rules and regulations of the games so they know what to expect when the league starts. We want to avoid confusion between players and the referees as this will disturb the games if players do not know the rules.”

Registration of players and affiliation fees are $75 and $50 for football and netball respectively.
