A friendly football tournament looks like it has become a fixture of the International Men's Day (IMD) activities.
Held last Saturday (22 November) at Camana Bay's Sports Field, and with approximately 100 players participating, the tournament helped to encourage young boys and men to engage in positive male bonding while engaging in healthy activity.
First place winners Team United (16 years and up) sponsored by Office of Complaints Commissioner and Team YFP (13 to 15 years) sponsored by Cayman National Bank  won the $500 cash prize for their respective age groups.
Each year, the Cayman Islands joins other countries around the world who celebrate the achievements of men and boys each year. Led by the Department of Counselling Services' Family Resource Centre (FRC), this is the fourth year that the tournament has formed a part of the International Men's Day programme.
Organizers expressed special thanks to event sponsors: Davenport Development, Island Taste, Estella Scott-Roberts Foundation, Cayman National, Office of the Complaints Commissioner and Dart.
